Catching Sun

A snake or ...?

It's a slowworm aka blindworm, of course. quite common in these parts. We met it while on an easy afternoon doggy walk in the Golovec forest.

It was motionless, enjoying the sun. Two quick photos and off we were while the tiny lizard was still basking in the sun.

Nature is wonderful.


Better and better

You saw a snake and too pictures?! If I saw one of those I'd likely have enough motivation to finally go under 25mins for the 5km, with the way I'd be running out of there

It wasn't a snake. It was a lizard without legs.

Anyways, snakes tend to go away if not directly confronted. Or simply lie still under the sun like this (not) snake was doing.

Oooh, where is this, which country? Do you know if it's poisonious? Or is it like the snakes we have in Norway, where it's only dangerous if you're allergic to it?

It's in Slovenia. And it's not a snake although it looks like it. No, it's not poisonous.

We don't have many poisonous snakes here.
