A slow moving Banana slug on a moss-covered wall made of railroad ties.

Cooooool. Hard to believe ANY creature actually comes in that color! Great shot.

I thought that was a banana pepper at first. It's a lovely color, but I'm not a fan of slugs.

I am filled with gratitude that all slugs are slow moving. I especially like the banana slug because it is so easy to spot (not that I've EVER spotted one) as I live in fear of accidentally stepping on a slug barefooted.

Oh, my, slugs give me the creeps...just a little. Glad it's slow-moving! It is a lovely color, though.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

He looks huge! Not a big slug fan, but he is a nice color.

It's been a really long time since I've seen a slug that wasn't ugly brownish-green color. The first thing I noticed when the page loaded was that it matches Curious George's banana in the sidebar.

gross. Not a fan of slugs. Though it is a nice color (and like Alyce, I noticed how well it matched CG's banana--it well deserves it's name) but gross!

I didn't even know that slugs came in that color. I think the horns are fascinating.

Great capture! Love the color of the slug.

Slugs make me squirm! Ewwww!! We don't have any pretty yellow ones though and I've seen a few of those awful huge ones :(

Simcha said...

Wow, that's really cool. I've never seen such a slug before. It looks like the plastic kind that my kids would play with.

(though the resident 8 year-old just saw this and was all "cooooooool"!!)

Hi!
What a pretty color. I'm sure there isn't anything that will eat him. Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!

Very cool looking little guy. We don't have them here in the midwest. At least not that I know of. I like to take pictures of bugs and critters. ;)

I prefer my bananas in the peel, thanks. But yeah, cool snapshot.

That is the grossest thing ever!
