A 'Tiger Slug' in our Wild Area

Boston discovered a ‘tiger slug’ down in the wild area.  In no time we had magnifying glasses to examine this beautiful creature.  I asked, “why do you think it is called a Tiger Slug?”  Boston quickly responded, “’cause I can see black stripes” “Yeah, like a tiger” added Hayley.


We watched it’s feelers stretch and quickly shrink back, it moved it’s way slowly around the cable reel and eventually found it’s way back into the hole It obviously came out of and curled back up – “for a snore” Boston commented.


We explored the internet to discover Slugs are nocturnal and a detrivore (an organism that feeds on and breaks down dead plant or animal matter).  Plus other interesting facts.
