Hello Anguisfan. Has your slow worm still got unshed skin on it? If it has soak it in warm water for 15 minutes or so, hopefully that will soften the skin enough to allow it to come off. I know it sounds obvious, but donít have the water so deep that it drowns...

If youíre going to release it this is the best time of year - it will have plenty of time to build up fat reserves before hibernation. Find a suitable site (somewhere that already has slow worms if you can) andlet it go by some cover; itíll be absolutely fine.

Good luck!

Soak him a little longer and see if you can gently roll the skin down his body. Careful he doesnít drop his tail though.

Feed him as many slugs as you can. He wonít eat crickets or mealworms, but you could try him on small earthworms. Not the red ones you find in compost heaps though, as they can be toxic.

To be honest, I think you should let him go. Problems with shedding are normally caused by something being wrong in the vivarium/environment, if you release him itíll probably sort itself out.

BTW, as you live in Greece you may not have Anguis fragilis, he could well be A. cephallonica!
