Banana Slug at Leach Garden

Banana Slugs Are Weird!

Banana slugs, plentiful inhabitants of Leach Garden, are Pacific Northwest natives, and always a delight to see. This one, obviously a member of the Slow Food Movement, was caught on video by our speedy volunteer coordinator, while it enjoyed a bright green stem.

Slugs and snails use rows of sharp teeth on their tongue to grab, rasp and move food along the digestive system. Super cool close up image. The sound they make is spectacular! You can listen here by clicking on the two options in the upper left corner.

For more information, check out these two articles at Bay Nature Magazine.

Community Riparian Habitat Restoration Program
