I have been watching Barry (Slow worm ) and his/her babies every day but when I lifted the lid two days ago I found the babies still there but no Barry....just this rather gruesome skin left! I had no idea that Slow worms shed their skin like snakes. You live and learn! I'm sure he isn't far away and so long as he keeps the slug and snail population down I don't mind where he lives.
A good day for soup
