I think it's wonderful that they come in all colors since they don't have much to say.

Thanks for the post today.  I hate slugs, I have a stone wall that I often see them sunning themselves on.

Good picture by the way.

Charlie,

We take our northwest slugs for granted. Some people find them gross.

Posted by Steven L. Smith, Bellingham WA Home Inspector (King of the House Home Inspection, Inc.) about 9 years ago

Erika, they moooove really quietly too

Joan, they do have a high yuck factor

Glen----they do come in a rainbow of colors

Patricia----watch out they are our state horse

valerie, maybe we could start a whole new think like the worm in tequila?  My cheapo Fuji S700 goes from 5/8" to 10x zoom

Wow, neat bright frill along the bottom.  Quite a character.

Posted by Jim Allhiser, Salem, Oregon Home Inspector (Perfection Inspection, Inc.) about 9 years ago

Michael, I think they have the market cornered

A, they can do a lot of damage

Jim, that is what I found so interesting about this little guy

Posted by Charles Buell, Seattle Home Inspector (Charles Buell Inspections Inc.) about 9 years ago

Charles, is he edible?  Oops!  Guess not.  For a minute I thought it was a snail.  Great photo!

When he hike out here on the west coast we see the big yellow banana slugs...  someone always licks one!  HAHA!

Leave the little slugger alone.

Who knows someday we might have a beer with him.

Enjoy the day

Posted by Don MacLean, Realtor-Homes for Sale- Easton Mass (New England Real Estate Center Inc.) about 9 years ago

Looks like we're slugging it out together today - oh wait - we were talking about short sales.....lol

It is funny that we have both the ugly slug and all of the beautiful grey and black squirrels.

Posted by Steven L. Smith, Bellingham WA Home Inspector (King of the House Home Inspection, Inc.) about 9 years ago

Nice picture - I have never wanted to photo them.  But I did see a banana slug in Oregon that was pretty interesting looking!

Posted by Peggy Chirico, REALTOR® 860-748-8900, Hartford & Tolland County Real Estate (Prudential CT Realty) about 9 years ago

I never knew they had ridges on their back sides.  Of course, I never got THAT CLOSE to look -- Gee thanks Charlie!!  HA HA HA

Posted by Carla Muss-Jacobs, RETIRED (RETIRED / State License is Inactive) about 9 years ago

Pat as edible as any snail as far as I am concerned

Chris do they taste like banana?

Don, lots of people like to have beer with slugs

Anna, same difference

Steve---same thing except one has hair

Peggy, I have no control over what I photograph :)

Carla, anything that shrivels up in gets ridges :)  When he is bookn' down the driveway the wrinkles go away and he is as smooth as a banana

I've got my 3 year old granddaughter looking over my shoulder & her comment is "Slugs are yucky"  LOL

Posted by Nancy Conner, Olympia/Thurston County WA about 9 years ago

Nancy, tell her that if she can locate one big enough she can slide on and off real easy while riding.

Posted by Charles Buell, Seattle Home Inspector (Charles Buell Inspections Inc.) about 9 years ago

I don't mind bugs and spiders. Only slugs and two specific squirrels.

Don't have any slugs that look like that out here in CT. All of ours are yellow to orange.

Posted by James Quarello, Connecticut Home Inspector (JRV Home Inspection Services, LLC) about 9 years ago

Kate, great but don't you think 2.99 is a bit steep----or is that 2 for 99?

Jim-pictures----pictures

Well, over at Wal-Mart, they are offering Nutsy for .25 cents a pound to those who can't afford quality meat.

Posted by Kate Kate about 9 years ago

That's NUTS!

Delicious escargot!  Can you find those on sidewalks or must they be purchased?

 

Very kindly,

 

Croakster

Croakster, if you would just sit still long enough I am sure one would crawl right on you.
