Meaning of BLINDWORM in English

also called Slowworm (Anguis fragilis), a legless lizard of the family Anguidae. It lives in grassy areas and open woodlands in Great Britain and throughout Europe eastward to the Caucasus Mountains. The adult is about 30 centimetres (1 foot) long, but some specimens grow to 50 cm. They are usually brown, chestnut, gray, bronze, brick red, or coppery. The female's underside is usually black. The lizard eats snails and slugs and other soft animals, using pointed, fanglike teeth. Internal pelvic girdles are the only vestiges of legs.
