Isn't He Handsome?

Have you ever seen this creature's nose? His nose is a hole on his right side!
I found him on these daisies:
Some interesting facts about slugs are here .

  1. When I first saw your post on my dashboard I mistook the slug for chocolate!It was a thumbnail and I didn't have my specs to hand. He or it is a very fine looking speciman.

  2. I thought the same thing as GOSS, that slug is a monster. Nice close up, but that is one slimy bug I never like getting near and I pick off more than I like. I have to admit, he is much better looking than the ones up here.

  3. Ewe! Looks like he's fattened up on all your delicious plants. Interesting specimen though. Happy Labor Day!

  4. I didn't know slugs got that large! Wow! I thought the first picture was a slug garden ornament, certainly not a real one!

  5. I hate slugs. But, this one looks kind of cute. Well, I should say 'lookED'.

  6. I always think snails look kind of cute. Maybe it was the way snails were portrayed in childrens books and TV when I was a kid that leaves me finding them 'cute' almost with a personality. Who knows? one thing's for sure, If they're chewing through prized plants and seedlings lovingly sown, then cute NO MORE.

  7. I do like slugs - I did a mother's day post on banana slugs actually - our local ones here in the santa cruz mountains are chrome yellow. I hate to see people cutting them in two. Course I also hate to see them eating my plants, but so far I don't have a big problem there!

  8. Now what's he doing up there on your daisies? He's got a lot of nerve! I have never seen them on plants but mostly on the sidewalks but yet the holes in some plant leaves show where they've been munching. Ugly Son of a gun that can do much damage. Run for the salt box or put a saucer of beer near your plants or go to garden center and buy the Sluggo granules. The salt will kill them quickly as will the Sluggo if they chose to digest it, but they will drown in the beer if they get in the saucer/bowl.


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
