      Yes indeed!

      I watched a documentary about amphibians yesterday and learned about a legless salamander that looks like and burrows like a worm. The female of this species feeds her babies with a fluid that is something like milk. It also supplements their diets by shedding her skin every three days which the babies eat.

          Hi Coolwater,

          I don't have a link to the documentary, but here is a link to the particular type of salamanders I described:

          There are a number of species, although it looks like maybe only one feeds its young shed skin.

          Have fun.
