    Hi there, I am in desperate need of advice. My mother (who very much needs a holiday) has just found out that area around the cottage she has booked is very popular with slow worms. My mum is cripplingly phobic of snakes, and as much as slow worms are technically lizards, I'm pretty certain...

    I got given a slow worm (long story). It is in a small faunarium at the moment. As soon as I have a chance I am going to release it, but I thought I should be feeding it. I looked up websites and they say slugs and worms, but I live in an upstairs apartment ... :hmm: It is quite a young one. I...

    I just got a slow worm from the garden and thought it would make a nice addition to my snake collection (i know its a lizard). I have been searching round for care sheets, but they have only stated the obvious, what i need to know is how often i feed him? is it once a week like a snake, or once...

I bought 2 about 10 years ago and unfortunately one died about a year ago. All I know about them is they are Eastern European, very...

    Hello, I have bought a house in Sth Wales, the house was empty for some 3 years and the garden very overgrown. Whilst I was clearing I came across a slow worm. He had a very lucky escape as I nearly put a spade through him, not on purpose I just managed to recognise what it was and deflected...

    A friend asked me if she spotted a native snake last summer, and gave me this photo she'd taken. Just thought I'd post the picture of one of our pretty native lizards, even if it's not a snake really.
