This not a snake, its a legless -or "worm"- lizard, probably an "Amphisbaena kuntzei" or a similar species...
Mehmet and loot
I dont agree. I think it is a full grown blind snake. I can say that even if the appearence is cute, skin pink color is somewhat creepy
Sorry gentlemen, but this is not a snake, its a legless -or "worm"- lizard, probably an "Amphisbaena kuntzei" or a similar species...

I fully agree with Mehmet - this is not a baby snake, but some kind of legless lizard, slow worm, or worm lizard. I hope you would take up the challenge to do some further research on the ID and then rectify your notes once you have found the correct information.
PS. Critique update:
1. Have a look at this Wikipedia site for "Amphisbaenia". Although it would not give you a positive ID on your specimen it will provide you with valuable insight and direction pertaining to the reptile you show on this photo. A worm lizard.
2. This "Zipcodezoo" site will give you much more information on the 24 genera and the 237+ species within this family of lizards.
3. Here at "Google" you will find many photos showing different species of this family of lizards.
4. This site "Reptiles y Anfibios de ARGENTINA" will show you the specific species that Mehmet refered to. Just scroll a bit down the page and you will find it.
I sincerely hope this will help you in your search to find the correct ID. Good luck.
Güzel bir yavru ama doğal ortamından koparmanızı etik bulmuyorum.
