Guys, let me tell about this awesome lizard. Yes, this is a limbless lizard, not a snake.
This kid is Anguis fragilis (slow worm / blind worm) and it’s a lizard that I’ve known since a child, because we had to memorize it’s not a snake.
They are very helpful in gardens as they eat insects, they are harmless and stuff anf they can lose (and regrow) their tail in case they feel threatened.
They are amazing, but also a protected species, their numbers are decreasing a lot.
Oh yeah, they can grow up to 45-50 cm and they can live up to 30 years in the wild.
(You can go read up more of them on wiki as i am unable to translate all my Czech knowledge to english).

Extinctions Have Sky-Rocketed With The Advent Of Humans, But Just How Much May Shock You.
It’s hard to comprehend how bad the current rate of species extinction around the world has become without knowing what it was before people came along. The newest estimate is that the pre-human rate was 10 times lower than scientists had thought, which means that the current level is 10 times worse.
Extinctions are about 1,000 times more frequent now than in the 60 million years before people came along. The explanation from lead author Jurriaan de Vos, a Brown Univ. postdoctoral researcher, senior author Stuart Pimm, a Duke Univ. professor, and their team appears online in the journal Conservation Biology.

Resurrection science may allow these animals to make a come-back, but there’s heated debate going on about whether it’s worth it to revive these animals when there are so many others in need.
