the English name is "Slowworm", which is more fitting anyway, as they are not blind at all (in spite of the German name). Nice animals, I had one in a terrarium as a child!

Wikipedia says:

Anguis fragilis, or slow worm, slow-worm, slowworm, blindworm or blind worm ...

Leo.org says:

blindworm [zool.: die Blindschleiche (Anguis fragilis)
slowworm [zool.]: die Blindschleiche (Anguis fragilis)

I think we're both right and I'll change the caption to reflect both names ;-)
