I'd like to see those....


I'd bet you have. They're called ostriches.


No. They are called Emu's.

Very similar to the Ostrich. ( African )

I just came across this article myself, what an amazing find. Crazy how some animals or insects, invertebrates, whatever you wanna call it, can survive so long without science knowing or confirming they exist. New species are being found daily in some areas of the world from what I understand. From the rainforests to the volcanic craters to the bottom of the ocean, makes you wonder what crazy finds there are waiting for us in some of these places.

Do you live on mount Kaputar too?


The existence of 8-inch fluorescent pink slugs on Mount Kaputar, a 5,000-foot peak in New South Wales, has only recently been confirmed.



The bizarre 8-inch creatures exist only in the alpine forest of Mount Kaputar in New South Wales.


Do you live in the alpine forest of Mount Kaputar in New South Wales, Australia?

No we live on the California coast at the North end, we have the Redwoods and Banana slugs are all over the place. Regular slugs too are really big here. So ours are the Pacific kind.


The Pacific banana slug is the second-largest species of terrestrial slug in the world, growing up to 25 centimetres (9.8 in) long,[4] and weights of 115 grams (4.1 ounces).[5]

(The largest slug species is Limax cinereoniger of Europe, which can reach 30 centimetres (12 in) in length.)

That is seriously a sweet looking slug. I mean, I would like to have one as a pet and possibly to eat because it looks rather tasty doesn't it?

But this isn't a banana slug. And I know for a fact there are no bright pink slugs in northern California. Nice try.

That is so cool! As an Australian, this is just fascinating. Thanks for the thread!

It was an excellent "try". Meaning they have big slugs too. As a matter of fact. The pink one, and the Banana one would probably make one AWESOME smoothie.

No it was a fail. The topic is pink slugs that are only found in Australia. She said that where she lives, they exist too. They don´t.

The pink slugs in the op only live in that particular place in Australia.

Normal slugs are virtually everywhere.

I think everyone agrees that the extremely fascinating thing here is the fact that they are slugs that are pink.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was genetically engineered and released.

That would make perfect sense, because they are pink.

I am sorry you must have misread my post. I was simply showing the similar large yellow ones we have here. ?? Sorry for the misunderstanding.

By this I meant the photo I included.

The giant banana slugs in the on the pacific Coast are not common to the rest of the world.

There are all levels of reading comprehension. Some people need to read things more then once and carefully.
