Blindworm sighting

On a recent stroll to my mother´s I came across this blindworm (anguis fragilis, in German: Blindschleiche) in the rain. I know now why it´s also called slow worm.... I sat there and watched, but it would not do much...;-). Don´t know of its nutritional value ;-) but it seems to be cinch to catch...;-).


  1. Nice sighting, Markus. Maybe the poor little bugger was getting cold in the rain, hence why he wouldn't move? Of course, anything (well almost) can be turned into food, but I can't see there would be much to feast on...:-) Over here, they are protected by law, are they in Germany?

  2. Of course they are, and I am kidding... I thik I would have to be in quite the pinch to start eating worms and snakes... it´s way better to be prepared than having to "survive".

    And I am not overly fond of those "survivalists" dressed with a swimming slip and a fighting knife eating anything just to prove they can!

    I want to make clear that I am here to protect nature a tiny bit;-)as much as I can, however little that may be... and I enjoy them blindworms, fox puppies and wild pigs alive.;-)


Now go on, discuss and rant and push my ego;-). As long as it´s a respectful message, every comment is welcome!
