Startling Slug

I almost stepped on this guy at the Hoyt Arboretum on Sunday; it was startlingly fat.

Fat SlugThose are John’s size 12 shoes for comparison.  As you can see, the slug isn’t particularly long…. but he was a solid  3/4″ in diameter, or perhaps even larger.  Whoa.

I have some prettier photos from our Sunday mini-hike.  Coming soon!

    • Rats! (Or as we used to say in Austin and have had a hard time kicking the habit of: Bats!) His shoes are so enormous that they make the slug look big to me, but I guess I should have picked something else for scale…
