Here's a leopard slug that was on the inside of the rim of the compost bin this morning.
I'm not picking it up with my bare hands. I did read though that they do eat other slugs. Maybe I should introduce it to the slugs that are still hanging out around the dahlias, although finally, most of the dahlias are winning the battle.
And the rather gross seeming leopard slug can also be totally fascinating.
You've got to watch this video.
All I can think of though, is running face first into that down a dark trail one night:(
