Description

El vidriol, serp de vidre, llisona, lliseta, noia de serp, noia, nina, i també a Catalunya del Nord anull o escanyacavalls (Anguis fragilis) és un rèptil àpode.

Es tracta d'un llangardaix sense potes que sovint es confon amb una serp. Pot assolir fins a 50 centímetres de llargada, tot i que habitualment és més petit.
La seva cua és llarga, sovint més llarga que el conjunt del cos i el cap, però com altres llangardaixos, té la capacitat d'automutilar-se per evadir-se d'un predador. En aquest darrer cas, la cua no recupera les dimensions inicials.
A diferència de les serps, muda la seva pell per plaques i no sencera. A més, com els altres sauris, té nombroses files d'esquames ventrals, semblants a les dorsals, en comptes de tenir una sola filera de grans esquames al costat inferior com les serps.

El conjunt de les escames és llis i lluent, i el color de l'animal és castany o gris.[2] Les femelles tenen una banda vertebral clara, mentre que els mascles són més uniformes, i els joves més daurats, amb bandes longitudinals fosques a l'esquena, els costats i el ventre.

Yesterday evening and this morning, I went up Mt. Mansfield with the VCE crew to do bird banding there. The evening was very foggy, but we managed to catch a couple things, including this female Black-throated Blue Warbler. We banded her and kept her over night in the hut for release in the morning.
