slow worms

leave a comment »

here is a picture of some slow worms that are living in our garden. I find them a bit freaky – too much like snakes. But aparently:

‘Slow worms look superficially like snakes, but are actually legless lizards. One way to identify them is that unlike snakes, lizards (and therefore slow worms) have eyelids.’

In this picture our slow worms are having sex. Nice.
