Reptiles – Slow Worm
Tuesday, October 4th, 2022
The slow worm is species of reptile located in the UK and Ireland. The slow worm has many names like the deaf adder, the blind worm, and sometimes even the long-cripple. Slowworms can be found in heathland, tussocky grassland, woodland edges, and rides where they can find invertebrates to eat and a sunny patch in which to sunbathe. They are often found in mature gardens and allotments, where they like hunting around the compost heap. However, if you have a cat, you are unlikely to find them in your garden as cats predate them.
