Male slow worm found under a piece of roofing felt
No interactions present.
Slow worms are also known as blind worms, don't ask me why when they have obvious, though small, eyes and real worms appear to have none. They even make it into Shakespeare:
Newts and blind-worms, do no wrong,
Come not near our fairy queen.

I seem to recall that Slow Worms can close their eyes whereas snakes cannot. Perhaps that explains why they are 'blind' compared to snakes?
