Your letter to the bugman:  okay first, I would like to thank you for your service, I have deep respect for anyone whose uses their scientific knowledge to help others and incentivizes them to use/learn scientific thought
now regarding the slugs
from time to time I find these cute little slugs in my garden, I’m pretty sure this one is a adult as most I have seen have a similar size (something around 1.5 cm), oddly enough I always find them in pairs (which probably is just a coincidence), they seen to be pretty common as I have found them in several distinct locations, also their eyes are a little bit longer than that, I suppose the camera flash scared it, which led to it slightly retracting it’s eyes.
even though the picture isn’t in high-resolution, I hope it’s enough to help identify these adorable slimy creatures.
How you want your letter signed:  Mr.K


Dear Mr.K,
Thanks so much for your kind words.  Alas, we are unable to provide you with anything more than you already knew.  This is a Slug, a Mollusc in the class Gastropoda
