but what's even cooler is that it wasn't a snake at all, it was actually a slow worm, which is actually a species of legless lizard and not a worm at all either

It was a baby one but it was throwing me because I couldn't work out what it was. I was sure it was a snake, despite not looking anything remotely like a native snake species (i've seen both adders and grass snakes), so I assumed it was an escaped exotic pet. I felt bad leaving it there but I didn't know what else to do, it was lunch time and I had another lecture in 10 minutes.

But it turns out it's an endangered species of lizard native to the British Isles, despite me never hearing anything about a slow worm in my life, and it threw me for even longer because nowhere mentions that baby ones look completely different, they have a golden stripe running down their backs and look real skinny, where as adults are fat and pure black

reptiles are pretty awesome





The only thing that's confusing me now is, surely all snakes are just legless lizards?

Is your cat a leopard?

Cats are awesome too

I found out the difference between a legless lizard and snakes. They actually evolved independently and aren't really related despite looking so similar. You can tell them apart because legless lizards have eyelids and external ear openings, where as snakes don't, and their belly scales are different. Legless lizards also have a much stumpier tail due and their tongue isn't as forked and looks more derpy

I think 'legless lizards' also aren't venomous, whereas plenty of snakes are.

She just follows me, at first I tried to shoo her away and carry her home but she just follows. So I just let her do her thing, which usually involves killing other animals.

Yeah last time I was in the UK my uncle showed me around the Yorkshire Dales and I noticed movement out of the corner of my eye and I saw a snake, about 2 meters away from us slithering away. Needless to say I shat myself and my uncle just starting shitting himself laughing. He said in his impossibly thick Barnsley accent "it won't hurt you lad, it's just a grass snake" to which I replied "well you know growing up in Australia, we're taught that if you see a snake, you shit yourself and try to put as much distance between you and the snake as possible."

I think the point I'm trying to make with this post is fuck snakes.

Well TS, you ended your post with the only thing I had to say in this thread. Except for this reply to you.


EDIT

Oh god don't even bring up villa man why did i have to pick a bpl team that would do this to my heart

football is garbage cause there's absolutely no change of powers over the years. there's no draft to get good young players to bad teams and when a bad or average team finds a gem they just leave to go play for whomever has the most money. it's lame. it's a really fun sport to watch, i enjoy it, but that system is just all kinds of awful.

it's too much like life; the rich win
