Arion ater

Okay okay, not the most popular subject, but i just had to put this up. Huge at 10cm long, they're usually black and that hole on the side is its Pneumostome (breathing hole).
No slugs were harmed in the taking of this photo, but it is now residing in a neighbours garden.

Ladies....best viewed large!
Wow, what an interesting thing! And my new word of the day is "pneumostome"!

Slugs too, are deserving of their moment of fame.

Great close up, I knew they were breathing holes but didn't know the name for them, you learn something new everyday.

Oh Hudd - I cannot stand slugs - I'm sure they MUST have some reason to be here - maybe for you to take a photo of! :)

Great macro, Hudd -- you caught all the ickyness (except the slime trail :-) I'm sure he's most happy in your neighbor's garden. ( I have a very similar repository LOL) Be very well, Les
