Camera Critters #242

They are gross and disgusting and most people kill them on sight.

 

They are slugs…a Limax maximus to be specific.

 

This slug is common in the Pacific Northwest and from the number of them found in the flower garden in my back yard, common isn’t the word to describe these unwanted critters.  I found this particular slug crossing the walkway here on Nov. 18.  After all the cold weather we have had here, I was surprised it was still crawling around.

 

However, they are critters and after all, this is Camera Critters.  Smile

Oh it is long! It is so different than what we have here, shorter and flat. I can't smash something like that, yaicks!

I find slugs quite fascinating ... as long as they don't eat my plants!

Not my favourite critter, but at least they aren't as bad as the ones that eat all of my veggies in the garden - Margy

I like your slug. I went on an outdoor adventure with my students, and the instructor taught us to appreciate the ones we saw in the forest.
