Caption

Slow worm (Anguis fragilis). Despite its appearance it is not a snake, instead being a legless lizard. It inhabits grassland and moorland throughout most temperate parts of Eurasia, including southern Britain, where it is often seen in gardens. The slow worm feeds on slugs and snails and other small invertebrates. Like other lizards it can drop part of its tail when threatened. It can grow to a length of around 40 centimetres.
