    A PINK slug! Never seen one of those before

    It is on the just-out updated Endangered species list. Slugs are on my short(2 only) list of animals I dislike, but for that one I would make an exception!

    It's still a slug, though! Slugs are slimy and eat garden plants
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    We hoomins probably don't look too cute to them either!

    A slug is a slug is a slug - no matter what color he/she is.. They are still nasty and give me the creeps, and even if this pretty pink one who is on the endangered species list, showed up here, then there would be one less of this variety to protect, and it would meet the same fate as all the other slugs who made the mistake of visiting this piece of real estate.

    Slugs are disgusting................

    Gee, I'm so glad someone said it first. They have ruined so many of our plants, they are SO nasty. I don't believe they have one redeeming quality, not one. I think the hot pink one is even freakin' creepier! Slugs...they are simply revolting to me

    Hey, folks, the only one of us that has even a remote chance of running into one of these is Carole, and I don't think she's into going hiking in the upper reaches of Mount Katupur in New South Wales, Australia!

    Ooooh. Yuck, forgot about those. We use to have to check for them after we went swimming in Spring Lake in Sask. My Aunt Penny would have to put a lit ciggy on them to make them let go. Must have blocked that out till just now, thanks a lot!!!!

    Stranger things have happened.


    Color has nothing to do with it - I'm not prejudice. Any slug - no matter what color - will be dealt with as others have been that decided to come visiting. Did you know that they like dry cat food? When Sherbie was still alive, the slugs would get in his dish (outdoors) at night and finish off anything that he hadn't eaten. Sometimes they would still be by the dish in the early morning, and of course they always left slime behind. Disgusting!

    I've never met a light pink slug
    and wouldn't want to be one?
    Is it a snail or maybe a bug?
    I'd never want see one.
