Cool...but, eeewww!

Card #: US-1024605
From : cami21901
Origin: California
Caption: The Banana Slug, Ariolimax columbians, gets its name from its bright yellow color. Found in the damp, foggy coastal forests of the Pacific Northwest, banana slugs eat vegetation thus speeding up the decomposition and soil building process. Redwoods.
Note: "Greetings from San Francisco! These slugs can get to be 5-6 inches long. I'm not afraid of them, but they are really sticky & have an annoying habit of eating dog poop."

The day J received this card, we had pancakes for supper. As a joke, I make a pancake for her that was shaped like a banana slug, complete with eye stalks and all.
