Leopard Slug (Limax maximus) by Twan Leenders

Posted on Oct 7, 2013

This is a Leopard Slug (Limax maximus), another backyard visitor that you may have to look carefully to find but certainly stands out. This one is a regular visitor to a compost pile in Jamestown. You may also find them in a garden or elsewhere in your yard. They are actually an introduced species that is native to Europe. Stunning!
