Slow worm hibernacula at Welland.

Slow worm entering newly constructed hibernacula

Slow worm
JPR constructed some slow worm hibernaculas at a client's site in Welland.  The video shows an obliging slow worm entering its newly constructed home.

Constructing hibernacula as a refuge for slow worms is often a planning requirement on developments and they can provide excellent stops for these reptiles to over-winter.  However, hibernacula constructed with slow worms in mind can enhance refugia for a whole range of animals from insects to small mammals.
