The patterns you can see are as I saw them, in red and orange. There was a hole in the side of each slug within each pattern. Could you please tell me what they are? I have never seen coloured patterns such as these on any living creature, so I am keen to hear what you have to say!

Hi, thanks for the reply. I’m in Sydney, Australia. Thanks,
Simon Edwards
