Banana slugs at the beach


Western Oregon is a world full of slugs, but we found a few at the beach this week that are worth mention.

A few days ago, this banana slug was peeking into the garage from outside . It had squeezed its eye stalks into a gap between the wall and the garage door. I wonder was it was looking for.

Earlier today, Sarah and I found the two largest banana slugs we have ever seen on a trail near the beach at Bob Straub State Park.

It is surprising that these slugs thrive so close to a huge body of saltwater.

  1. Too cool. Couldn't believe the size of the critters first time I saw one. Color of your first pic is awesome.
