slow worm

  1. Lizards
    We were pleased to see our first slow worm -- a female about 10 in. long -- on the move in our garden yesterday. However, after settling itself in the sun under some magnolia petals, we noted that it had stopped moving and stayed put until nightfall. We took it inside in a box with leaves and a...

    Anybody have a natural UK planted terrarium or vivarium? I'm looking into setting up a terrarium for a couple of slow worms but I want to keep it as natural as possible. Pictures would be great for inspiration as well.

    Hi Sorry, I already posted basically this exact message in the snakes forum, but I'm fairly desperate. I'm pretty sure there is a slow worm loose in my flat, I found pieces of shed skin on the floor a couple of days ago but I've not been able to track down it's hiding place. I have no idea...

I have no idea how it got in here...

    Hey all, I don't venture out of the snake section much (maybe I should get out more) but I thought this was the correct section to post this. I just saw Fluffy the local cat playing with something in my garden. I ran out to find this little guy. Couldn't see any marks or injuries on him...

    31st of Jan, I saw our first slow worm. I would have thought it was a bit early but it is quite mild here. I assumed it may have been washed out of a burrow? Has anyone else seen them out yet?

  13. Lizard Care Sheets
    WORD OF WARNING! I'm terrible at spelling/grammar Ok so I decided to make a care sheet on slow worms. It’s my first ever care sheet and is based on my experience with my female that got when I was 13 (2 years ago) and my general knowledge on the species. If anyone has any advice/experience that...
  14. Lizard Care Sheets
    I have had a female slow worm for over 2 years. I looked on the internet and there seem to be no care sheets for these lovely animals. So I was wondering whether to make one based on my experiance. Is it worth doing? It would have the care side but also have how I tamed mine and the behaviour I...

    Hello all this is my first thread. Before some people start to sharpen their pitch forks I will say the legal side of keeping slow worms. They are protected in schedule 5 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. It is illegal to intestinally harm and or kill one. It is illegal to sale...
