Attack Of The Killer Slugs

Killer Slug

Argh, those slimy bastards. This is the killer slug, and a nice big one too. They have different names including killer slugs, Spanish slugs and the latin name Arion Lusitanicus. I guess the killer nickname comes from the fact that they eat each other like cannibals. That is not so clever because when one of them eats slug “poison” it will go back to the nest and die, in this case the compost box. Then the rest of them eat the sick one, and they go down with it. Luckily this picture is taken on top of the compost box and not in any of the raised beds. They’re capable of moving 9 meters (30 feet) an hour so you better watch out for an attack of the killer slugs, uuuh 😉
