Slug Mating Habits

Sometimes I know I shouldn’t click a link, but I can’t help myself. When someone on the Ravelry Gardeners forum posts about watching leopard slugs mate and describes it as “cool,” I can’t help myself.

I click the link.

And now I’m worried about walking into a pair of slugs, their penises intertwined, suspended from a tree by a mucus string.

(Fortunately, these slugs aren’t reported as living in Missouri. But if we cross the river into Illinois, I’ll be sure to watch out for mucus-suspended mating slugs.)

    No, um, really. Slugs and snails. Love.

      Feel free to take some from our yard!

      I like snails, but slugs cause me to feel weird. I think it’s because of stepping on a giant slug while wearing jelly sandals when I was six. Never got over the creepy feeling of slug stuff on my foot.

        Oh yuck. Carry on with your slug aversion, by all means. And if I ever start a slug sanctuary in my back yard, I’ll let you know.
