Something new in the Slug world for us - a 'Yellow Slug' (actual common name). About the same size as a Leopard slug and equally striking in it's own way.

This 'Yellow Slug' seems to have started the climb up the mini-mountain, didn't see anything interesting from the top so started back down. The eye stalks show better as shadows.

Hours after dark this Yellow Slug (the common name) slithers over the side of the stone. We have only seen this species a couple of times before.
