What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

mating slugs – limaces (with photo)
I took this photo about two weeks ago just down the road from a village near the River Creuse in the Limousin region of France. The French call these slugs “limaces.” Each one is about the size of a human finger. I found them fascinating. I stumbled across your page and thought you might be interested, too.

Hi Martha,
If we have time, we will try to identify the species. Meanwhile, we will post your fascinating image.

    Hi Daniel,
    These two are Arion rufus, sometimes known as the red slug. There is quite a nice article about this species at:

    Happy Birthday and all good wishes,
