Banana Slugs In Love

Yes they are mating.  Right out in the open next to the trail.
My first time to watch them in action.
They don't move fast but they will stay together for up to 12 hours during mating.
I hope to post a video of them in action soon.


  1. Hmmm, I can't tell if this is fascinating or yucky! They look huge! I think it's too dry here for giant slugs, but we do have salamanders ... I think that makes me happy! Great photos!

  2. so this is slug I was thinking the same as Anita, I'm torn between thinking they are fascinating and thinking they're kind of gross

  3. I've never heard of them before. I feel the same way as the others.
