Oh, I am so behind here and everywhere...I do think that you have a slug on the left. The are voracious eaters of lettuce greens, tomatoes, hostas and more. We have an abundance of them here in Oregon.Hope you are having a wonderful week.
Yes, some kind of a slug it is, but not at least the most common one here, because I don't remember I've ever seen something similar. The one on the right side again is very common here.Have a lovely week you, too! :)
Wow! I had never ever seen a slug in Finland! I remember tons of them in Italy, but I had never seen them here. I have to say this photographs brings out the colours of both the little animals wonderfully!
We have a lot of those snails here in Parainen, of which I have captured one also in this picture. After rain, like yesterday evening, you can see hundreds of them when taking a walk. Sometimes I've met also some slugs, but never earlier anything this big!
Oh my, what an enormous slug!!! Protect your plants!I've never seen one quite like that, we get the big tiger slugs that are an orangey colour. But... ugh, slugs are not on my list of favourite creatures!
My work mate identified this slug and I googled and this Limax cinereoniger seems to live in forests, not in gardens, like Limax maximus, which is known as leopard slug and is probably the same as the tiger slug, which you mention.
I looked around Google, I didn't find one that exactly looks like yur slug, but the Leopard Slug is pretty close. The markings may vary. The leopard slug is beautiful, but they are a real pain in the garden!
Leopard slug seems to be quite similar to this, but a bit smaller, than this ash-black slug, which was today identified by my work mate. And according to Wikipedia ash-black slugs luckily live in forests, not in gardens.
Did you know there is much protein in the slugs like this?Lasse
Yes, I do, and I like slugs in garlic butter, and I really hope I won't remember this slug, when I next time eat them somewhere!!
