Q: What moved faster than light today? A: ME!…… While digging earth today! Something wriggled…… I ran, and ‘Cool Jo’ took the photo. (Surprised slow worms move fast, but not as fast as me!) Gill Share this:TwitterFacebookMoreEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related

How long was that worm?
About 12 inches. Its a very harmless slow worm.(legless lizard) I think a young one! They are protected , so its pretty amazing to find one. There must be a family around somewhere.
I would have run too, even though I know they’re harmless! I didn’t know that they’re protected, but I used to see quite a few as a kid and I haven’t seen once since the seventies, so I’m not surprised.
I know someone who lives in Bodmin who has a family of em in their back yard, under a pile of bricks. Its only because I have seen those I knew what this was. Now I think about it, I hope the one that appeared here yesterday didn’t come back in my handbag ! 🙂 Yes they are protected and you are not allowed to sell them by law!. I am not sure what people would do with them. if bought or what the demand is though ! Did you know they have eyelids and blink, unlike snakes? (says the book)
