banana slug ~ 07/28/11 ~ Butano

banana slug
Ariolimax sp.

I love my picture of the pneumostome. Think one honkin' huge nostril. It almost looks like an eyeless eye, if you know what I mean. Oddly enough there's only one and it's always on the right side. Right? For much better information than I could ever provide, check out Snail's Tails post on how a slug breathes.

Hey, that's not red! I need to keep my eye out for the scarlet red blooms next year. It seems I only ever notice the large deep-blue berries under redwood trees.
