I ran across these little slimy characters this weekend and couldn’t resist getting them in front of my camera.  Here is a little bit of information about a Slug.

On top of the slug, behind the head, is the saddle-shaped mantle, and under this are the genital opening and anus. On one side (almost always the right hand side) of the mantle is a respiratory opening, which is easy to see when open, but difficult to see when closed. This opening is known as the pneumostome.
