Slowworm pits?

Postby Will Atkins » Mon Apr 17, 2017 6:53 pm

Can someone tell me what the tiny pits on a slowworm's head are for? I can see some that look regularly arranged almost like rivets on the trailing edges of labial scales and elsewhere on the snout of this large male - please follow the link and then enlarge to view clearly. Could they be sensory pits of some kind? Thanks!
