FACT OF THE DAY: SLUGS!!
A snail-like invertebrate animal without a shell; it has four antennae, with eyes that are located on the tips of one pair of antennae. The lower pair of antennae provide the sense of smell and both pair are retractable. Tentacles. Some species of slugs have a prominent ridge running over their back along the middle of the tail (sometimes along the whole tail, sometimes only the final part). This ridge is called a ‘keel’.
The bottom side of a slug, which is flat, is called the ‘foot’. Like almost all gastropods, a slug moves by rhythmic waves of muscular contraction on the underside of its foot. It simultaneously secretes a layer of mucus that it travels on, which helps prevent damage to the foot tissues.
Habitat: Moist or wet forests, mainly in coastal Alaska; the larvae lives on rotten leaves and logs.
Foods: Leaves of plants, including skunk cabbage, salmonberry, and others (my strawberries!)
Eaten by: Certain ground beetles
Do You Know? In dry air, a typical slug will lose as much as 16 percent of its body weight per hour if it is active. If dry conditions continue, death will result in a few hours
