That hole is (if I remember corretly) the respiratory pore. The slime stuf comes of the 'foot'

Awww come on you all. That thing is adorable and very pretty. I love snails and slugs :heart

Sure looks like a banana slug to me. I love the coloring on this one!

I agree.

It is funny that most of you react like my mom. 'Ew, get rid of it'

BTW: When moving a slug, son't use bare hands, use paper as that mucus sticks terrible.

i would love to own one! it is very pretty and intresting! i think it would be awsome to keep one in a 20 gal terrarium. though im the type of person who raises tadpoles every year and keeps a all snail tank :) about 2 weeks ago i brought in some drift wood off the beach and found a caterpillar i havent been able to identify it but i have in a critter carrier with a hunk of drift wood and some lettuce leaves and tossed it into my little mini fridge to hybernate. i figure it had climbed up into the drift wood to hide out once the weather turned cold. i really hope it survives and turns into somthing moth butterfly somthign!

it was about as long as my hand.

Cool--they do get big around here!! I used to play with the smaller ones in my yard when I was younger. I picked them up and let them crawl on me and leave their slime trail. Probably wouldn't do that anymore, esp. not with these big guys!
