gastropodus visitorius

Behold the lowly slug, who spreads a shiny trail of happiness behind him wherever he goes!

We like to poke slugs (gently) in the eye stalk, and then yell, "AAAAGH!  MY EYE!"  as they retract.  I promise it's hilarious. 

Kate was quite thrilled when this little slug crawled onto her hand, but discovered an inconvenient fact--that slime is hard to wash off!

Jessica Beecher said that her ducks would like to eat Kate's slug.  I told her Kate would certainly disapprove.  Sluggy stayed with us overnight in a jar, and then returned to the great outdoors.
