280 days of Urbpandemonium #17

Is it a shame that Boston's biggest and most beautiful slug is a Eurasian alien? Perhaps, I've been unable to summon anything but positive feelings for the leopard slug Limax maxima since I first encountered one on Mission hill 27 years ago. Apparently restricted to urban areas and reaching an adult stretched length of 4 inches, the leopard slug deserves a place as a sports team mascot like it's cousin the western banana slug.

I got at least one of my coworkers to appreciate this animal; now to convert the rest of the world.

(Of course you MUST watch them mate--it is so beautiful that it makes the awkward grunting efforts of vertebrates look absolutely absurd.)
