Snakes many times are seen as symbols of evil, but this little fellow is actually no snake. It is a limbless lizard. They have eyelids and can blink, unlike snakes. It is the first time I have seen Anguis fragilis( ”slow-worm”?) this year.
There is a comic where a snake caused panic in the smurfvillage, but was calmed by music and later the postman smurf uses the snake in his work. 🙂
