The Boettger's caecilian's story The story of a woman who’s husband is a Boettger's caecilian (Siphonops paulensis). The snake impregnates her with his children, by having sex with her through a hole he made inside a big pile of garbage in the woman’s house. After the Boettger’s caecilian is killed by the woman’s mother, and the woman mourns the loss of her dead snake husband, the woman is pursued by a jaguar man. The jaguar man is incapable of having sexual intercourse with the woman because of all the snakes and worms inside of her (the children of her dead Boettger’s caecilian husband) biting the head of his penis when he attempts to copulate with her. He gives her a remedy and the worms and snakes start dropping out of her vagina and exploding. However, some of them escape after the jaguar man is distracted by a bird (an undulated tinamou specifically), causing a proliferation of worms and snakes in all parts of the world.
