    Well it's about 6" long, pink, as thick as my middle finger, has deep round lines over it's body, fast moving, lives under the lawn & I'm a bit worried that it may harm me :unsure:

    any ideas what it is?

    I suggest a peruse of the Ann Summers catalogue may be in order.


    Or ask Chetz.....:p

    I said it lives under the lawn, not in a bush!

    You've absentmindedly set fire to one of your sheds in the lounge.
    Don't worry, it happens all the time.:D
     
  9. Elephant Hawk Moth caterpillar maybe - grow big and fat - hibernate in winter and emerge from the ground when it starts to warm up - like to eat Fuschias, look scary but harmless and beautiful moths. :)

    Or could be a Slow Worm - totally harmless (unless you are a Slug) - fast mover and very shy. Found underneath things - compost heaps etc etc. Dont grab its tail - it's really a lizard and it will shed its tail to escape :D

    It's not a Slow worm, I've had them in the old house...Just looked-up the Elephant moth, I can see it's about the same shape, but mine is twice as big and pink all over!

    Thanks for passing on some of your country folk knowingness Gerry, but I'll check-out Ann Summers at the weekend though, just in case Andy's right!

    Yep serious for once... Spice worms would be good, although it might be a mutant from the landfill down the road!

    ...moving without moving.

    also I found a large brown worm that smells, it doesn't move?
