Because slugs are adorable, and I love them. 😀
So, the first picture is one I took out on my back patio, of a pair of slugs who had just finished some frisky business. (At least I think that’s what they’d been doing. It sure looked like it).
The second photo is me, at my field site, joining the Banana Slug Club. (And I wasn’t the only one who kissed a slug that day. Far from it. This is a time-honored tradition here in California).
Finally, a different species of banana slug (from the one being kissed). I took that picture near Half-Moon Bay. And HOLY MOLY that’s one gorgeous slug!
