A Slug Visits My Cottage

 
I was glad I had my iPhone in my back pocket early this morning when I took the cat and the dog outside. This slug was much longer than the photo. I cropped it because the front of this large slimy invertebrate was the focal point.

Rosemary,
Our California slugs aren't nearly so colorful. What news of the toad do you have for us?

A Leopard Slug - how gorgeous. One of the largest land slugs in the world. The ones in our garden grow to over 10cm.
Nature is a marvel.
