I don´t wanna be anal about this, but you said,




We have these guys, almost stepped on one on the front steps today. They get big too, bet they would make a cute couple!


These guys. The most logical interpretation is that you were refering to the pink slugs in the op. Maybe you weren´t, but it sure looks like that with the words that were used in that sentence structure.

I wouldn´t worry about it though.

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.)

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


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.

No one misread anything. You said "we have these guys here, almost stepped on one on the front porch this morning", and I guess you tried to include a photo of something else that didn't show up, so anyone reading your reply correctly, as I did, could only assume the "these guys" you were referring to were the same as the slugs in the OP. So don't imply I don't know how to read because your photo did not properly embed. Maybe you need to reread your own post.

Well that would make sense to me, if the Large Photo that i had under it does not show for you. I was still seeing. Sorry for the rude comment about "reading comp".

I see the photo now, not sure why it didn't show in your previous post. No harm no foul, my apologies as well if I came off as a bit hostile about the reading thing. Good day friend.

It is a slug that is yellow.....

So no apology for me, what am I, chopped liver?

And why isn't that pic showing up in your initial post? There is no edit and no sign of an embedding attempt.

It seems it is some sort of glitch that is the cause of the confusion.

The pic in your original post is still showing up for me, also.

Weird!

Oh, and that slug is too!

Because they get to be around 9" long and the Indians here used to eat them

That would make sense.

They are very easy to spot since they are so long and yellow.

This reminds me of Bioshock, with the slugs that have these ~ amazing properties ~ that unlocked the power to genetics and allowed people to drug themselves up with super powers.

They're way too cool though. Hot pink slugs...

Nice thread purplemer !

We have heard all sorts of things being pontificated upon ...

Yet we have not considered, that such a slug; could build a shell ...


Cheap housing ?
( colourful and roomy! )

Portable camping option - just add wheels !

And the whole time offering the " Look at me !! " factor !

I can feel a marketing bent coming on ...

They're so interesting looking. If I came across one, I'm not sure if I would run away from it or stare at it for a minute.
