1116 - Slvggvs Maximvs

Friends, Romans, Countrymen... the slug races have begun!

At first my wife and I thought that some animal had double-crapped on our patio.  But then the little piles were seen to move, and as far as turds go that only happens if you eat beans in sriracha sauce.  

These are banana slugs, and right now is banana slug season.  Banana slug racing season, to be precise.  I clocked these speedsters sliming along at the blistering speed of an inch every thirty seconds.  That's just an eyeball stalk over three meters per hour.  What a rush!

Tomorrow, I'll show on JSVB a picture of what this race would look like from the slugs' viewpoint!  Stay tuned!
