Slow Worm

Anguis fragilis


slow worm, slow-worm or slowworm. It is also sometimes referred to as the blindworm or blind worm.


Slow worms are semifossorial (burrowing) lizards, spending much of the time hiding underneath objects.


I find that it looks like more the species in Greece (Anguis cephallonica , black and gold), but the is less chance that it's the greek one. http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anguis_ceph...
