      Wow - I've never seen anything like this! I wonder what the triangle is for -- to confuse his predators?!

      That's really interesting! Ours are just slimy green in NY. Do they all have the same shaped red patch, or are they different shapes?

      Guess you didn't have any trouble getting it to sit still for the photo!

      I have just found one of these slugs in my garden, at Glenreagh on the north coast of NSW. I have a good photo of it and it is a different variation in colour to any I have seen on this page. It is a cream one with the red triangle and has a very prominent red stripe from the triangle down the back to the rear end. I am wondering if it is possible to add my photo to this page at all to see if anyone else has ever seen this same variation in colour. I was thrilled to find this beautiful curious creature living under the base of a bird bath on gravel covered in moss.
