OMG is that real?Yes, that is a real slug. And yes, it is real pictures Two of them to be exact, one taken in my backyard with the slug next to my hand to show the scale to a friend from MA, the other taken in my front yard to try to match the background when I cropped the first one. If you look closely you can see a horizontal line running through it, it actually clips one of the leaves from the little plant on the right.
The ick factor went way up there just now.
Here's the original. This is a medium sized Pacific banana slug, ~6 inches - they can get up to 10 inches long, second largest slug in the world.
