Snail And Slug

They almost ended up on the bottom of my shoe this morning. The snail was a perfect specimen!


I took this with a flash. It was still dark and rainy at 6:00 a.m. They were thoroughly camouflaged.

We have had a ton of slugs and also grubs (or possibly they're white translucent caterpillars). Don't know if it's the time of year, or the wet weather. But one morning they were clustered around the kitchen door, which was sort of gross.

Do your cats go after them? They look so succulent. Bet they have that slimy okra feel.

The cats don't go out, so no. The grubs are a great low-fat protein source, if you have the stomach for it (I do not). They were big in Paleolithic times, as well as in many cultures today, though seemingly not ours.
