    The ones I saw being born were white, milky and covered in slime - lovely.

    I barely remember that being a snail so putting 8 and 15 together I came up with the idea that these might be slug....  but they might be Alien Kitty?  <Wonders> Why would they pick my cold frame? image

    Nightmares about George Cloggie? image

    Never, I'm his number one fan imageimage

    Not too sure about the leopard slugs, think I've read on the forum that they're the good guys of the slug world. Nut will know better than me.

  • What's George doing for Hallowe'en this year Clogs? I miss him a bit. image

    The good news is Leopard slugs eat other slugs. image

    The bad news is they grow up to 17cm long. That's over 6 inches. That's one helluva slug!!!! image

    George is currently doing the Full Monty (wearing only a hat) and is propped up against the hedge.  This unfortunately makes him look like a peeping Tom as my neighbour commented whilst hanging out her washing.

    Wish I'd not touched the sluggy maternity ward now, leopard slugs sound like fascinating creatures  https://www.opalexplorenature.org/leopardslug

  • This is really interesting and helpful to us new gardeners, thanks. Is now about the time we may see slug eggs about then?
