On a field walk in Luss I recently can across this little fella’. The day was warm and sunny and he was probably taking advantage of the heat to go out looking for a mate. You may well recognise him as a Slow Worm; but, of course, he is not a worm. Neither is he a snake. He is actually a legless lizard.
For our young readers he is harmless. But if you find one, don’t touch it. They are not too unlike young Adders which are not harmless!
