Usually the slugs I see in my 30g vivarium are about 1 cm at most... but not this one. It's freakin' huge!!! :eek: Needless to say i removed it and poured salt all over it Mwahahaha





Must be some kind of mutant slug or something! It's siblings aren't even a quarter of it's size. It must be a different species or something, but it looks the exact same besides the size difference so I'm not sure. Has anyone seen one this large?

Not to hijak, but DARE graduates are 2x as likely to use drugs as non DARE students.

Dont kill it, put it outside :(
BAD idea. That's irresponsible, at best. It's also criminal (in most areas), and quite possibly damaging to the environment. The potential for establishing yet another invasive species is huge, as is the potential for spreading pathogens and parasites. Let's not try to give the hobby another black eye.

I don't want blood on my hands. Besides that, the plants came from American nurseries...

Yes... American nurseries with plants from all over the world... Not only that, but the things INSIDE a nursery are much different from the things OUTSIDE. Releasing terrerium fauna into the wild is something any conservation-minded hobbyist should find deplorable. Just as an FYI, there are many invasive species of gastropods now established across North America. If one of us were responsible for the introduction of a new species (or even a new population of an already established species), that would be real "blood on the hands."

Unfortunately, the slug must die due to the risk of spreading chytrid and parasites in your local area from its release outdoors. If there were dormant chytrid in the tank, this could rapidly wipe out everything in the area.
Don't torture it, put some Orajel on it if you wish, but don't put it outdoors.
