Slugs, continued

Several of you have informed me that the Slug in the Rainforest was in fact a banana slug, and apparently there is a song about them:
Banana Slug, Banana Slug,
When some people see you, they just say Ugh.
Banana Slug, Banana Slug,
Next time I see you, I'll give you a hug.
This is from my Uncle Bruce, who got the lyrics from a Mary Miche CD "Earthy Tunes" but thinks it's originally from The Banana Slug String Band. What a great name!! Thanks Bruce!

My advice: don't hug that banana slug. I have a friend that accidentally stepped on one and it squirted all the way up her leg, so it's best to be very careful.

Thanks for the lyrics! Very funny!!

I don't think I'll ever hug a slug but I may accidentally step on one or two. Sometimes you just can't help it. They're everywhere!

When I was out in the Olympic Peninsula hiking we came across one of those things. They are very cool but so....so....bug...blech. But the rainforest is so incredible that seeing one just added to the wonder.
