I was in France recently, (as a future post will detail), but I caught my first lizard in Brittany. The foot-long silver thin snake-like creature (known as a slow worm) was skating along the tarmac outside the home of Claire’s mother. It was travelling slowly, so I was able to pick it up quite easily. I didn’t have a camera to hand though. The creature wasn’t struggling but was patiently waiting for me to put it down. Warm, nad not unpleasant to hold. Nearly a pity that we do not have these at home..
