A couple nights ago Farmer John told me to come outside & check out some slugs & that I might want my camera. He was right. It was awesome & weird & slimy. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what these slugs were up to. But, I guessed this was how they mate. I googled it and sure enough that’s what they’re doing. So put a stop to this right away if you’re not interested in having baby slugs in your garden.
Wanna know what the things are protruding out of their head? It’s their penis’s. Yep. Slugs are hermaphrodites, having both male & female parts. They are swappin’ sperm. In the next day or so they will both lay fertile eggs.
Kinda cool, huh!?
