Slow Watching -- Slugs

Have you ever watched a slug?  It is a slow watch.  About the only thing they do quickly is hide their head under their mantle when disturbed.  Wait.  Watch.  Finally one of the four feelers slowly comes out; then another and another and another.  The two feelers on top are much longer and seem to check for obstructions as he slides along ever so slowly.  He checks out a cavity in the wood and then slowly slithers his way back out. 


  1. Fascinating, you have made the slugs look attractive and funny, if that is possible! I love to watch insects, so does my cat, I have seen him watch a snail for ages :-)

  2. Slugs seem to be the ideal drawing model. Slow movement. Nicely observed.

  3. You did a great job on these slugs and yes, they are the perfect subject. We don't get them around here with all the sand, thank goodness for that.


We'd love to hear from you, your questions, comments, observations! Please feel free to comment, feedback is important to us.
