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.
