Go to the Slug, Thou Antard

"A slug, by any other colour..."
- William Shakesbeer

Today we examine the slug. Specifically, I believe this is a banana slug, albeit a rather off colour banan slug.

I found this creature today in my garden. He was beautiful so I photographed him extensively before the execution. (Oh, sorry, when slugs are found in my garden it's: "Off with his head.")

I really did think he was quite an amazing slug. I've seen this type in my garden before and they are usually black, so I'm not precisely sure if it is a banana slug or not. But ORANGE? I've never seen a bright orange slug before, so I had to take pictures.

I wonder if it was something he ate?
