How To Get A Big Wild Brazilian Penis Snake?
Don't worry, the "penis snake" is totally safe for work. Even though it looks exactly as you'd think.
The unusual species gained its NSFW nickname because of its appearance -- a broad, rounded head atop a thick, cylindrical fleshy body. "But this phallic squirmer isn't a snake at all but an extremely rare, limbless amphibian," notes io9's Lauren Davis.

The "penis snake" was first discovered in Brazil last November where engineers were building a dam in the Madeira River in Rondonia, according to Mongabay. Six of the unusual creatures were found at the time.
Biologist Julian Tupan identified the species as Atretochoana eiselti, a type of caecilian. Legless and lungless, this aquatic animal is thought to breathe through its skin. Tupan, who is working with the company building the dam, disclosed what little is known about the "penis snake" to Brazil's Estadao website, according to the U.K.'s The Sun.
"Of the six we collected, one died, three were released back into the wild and another two were kept for studies," Tupan reportedly told Estadao. "Despite looking like snakes, they aren't reptiles and are more closely related to salamanders and frogs. We think the animal breathes through its skin, and probably feeds on small fish and worms, but there is still nothing proven. The Amazon is a box of surprises when it comes to reptiles and amphibians. There are still much more to be discovered."
Previously, the U.K.'s National History Museum stated that no living populations of the A. eiselti had been found and only two preserved specimens were known.
This is not the first animal to be likened to the male genitalia and it will likely not be the last.

Here are some more tips from Durianrider & Freelee
One MUST get consistent early nights to ensure success on a healthy weight loss lifestyle. More early nights means a healthier and faster metabolism + you will have greater nerve energy for the next day as your organs get the rest they need to function healthfully.
High carb low fat fruit based lifestyles work wonders for long term weight loss transformations. Ive NEVER seen a fat fruit or rice muncher EVER. People sneak in fat and wonder why they get fat.
Im talking FAT FAT not skinny fat cos someone doesnt move their body and they wonder why they dont have a tight stomach. Weight loss transformation WILL happen when you do the right things. High carb, low fat, early nights, consistent hydration etc.
Participate in your fav activities to build the toned body that you want. Its easy to lose weight but to build a toned body you MUST MOVE IT! :) AND eat enough carb calories so that the active adventure filled lifestyle is EASY to maintain!! So many people make the mistake of not eating enough carb calories DAILY!! Thats like wanting to be a big spender on 5$ a day! CHOW DOWN THE CARB CALORIES REGARDLESS OF YOUR WEIGHT!!
My recommendations for anyone wanting to get fit + stay fit + gain muscle + burn fat is 10g of carbs per kg of bodyweight per day MINIMUM (even on days off) and 1g of carbs per kg of bodyweight per hour when you're out training. I personally drink enough water so Im pizz'n at least 10 times a day CLEAR and a few times a night. If my urine is yellow or straw, I just knock back a quart and Im good to go.
