Hey everyone, sorry it's been so long! I've been moving back to school and preparing to lead the new students during orientation!
Ran into this guy on the way to work this morning. While it's not an insect, everyone things of slugs with bugs so we'll let it slide! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
đŸ“·: Leopard Slug (Limax maximus) ❓ - The Leopard Slug is not in Phylum Arthropoda (where insects are located) but Phylum Mollusca (the molluscs) instead! ‱ Mollusca is the second largest Phylum of invertebrates (behind Arthropoda) and its members are characterized by having: 1) a mantle [protective wall] 2) a radula [rasping mouthpart] and 3) a nervous system ‱ The Leopard Slug's common name comes from their spotted appearance! Their scientific name literally mean "Biggest Slug" in latin, because they are one of the largest members of the land slugs ‱ These slugs are actually native to Europe but have been accidentally introduced all over the world, and can now be found on most continents (except for Antarctica) ‱ While invasive, these slugs are not horribly devestating to the ecosystems here in the US (as some other invasive species are) ‱ These slugs have a peculiar mating practice. Males and females intertwine, create a mucus ball around themselves and then dangle from a tree branch via a slime rope! Pretty awesome sight if you stumble upon it ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

#LimaxMaximus "the largest slug" or leopard slug. They grow to 6 inches long! This one is eating some cat food on the back deck (don't ask) and, stretched out, is the length of my forefinger. I went back to check on him and saw by his slime trail, that he had been travelling in circles, so I popped him into the garden.

LLIMACS... ECS! AI , POBRETS!
MODA LLIMACIANA : enguany es porta el vestit lleopard o, en tot cas, colors terrosos.
Mira que són grossos! Sort del meu amic Josep que té bon ull perquÚ ells pretenien passar desapercebuts. Colors críptics que els permeten camuflar-se en un rierol on tot és fang i restes vegetals...
Em fan una certa aversiĂł per dir-ho fi... perĂČ no cal tocar-los. Ara que reconec que el disseny que porten no estĂ  gens malament. El cargols fan de mĂ©s bon tocar... i no malpensis! No parlo de menjar, tampoc m'hi dedico.

És molt depenent de l'aigua i no se'n pot separar massa, aixĂČ mantĂ© en un cert control a l'espĂšcie ja que per nodrir-se Ă©s molt generalista: de plantes verdes, vives, a fulles en descomposiciĂČ...

TÀmÀ otus oli piiloutunut grillipeiton alle grillin pÀÀlle. Ruokalistalla ei kuitenkaan ollut grillattuja etanoita, joten pelastimme sen muualle ennen ruoan laittoa!
Denna panter- eller leopardsniglen hittade vi pÄ grillen vÄr, men dÄ det inte var grillade snigler i menyen idag, sÄ vi rÀddde den pÄ annat stÀd!
We found this panther- or lepard snail on our grill. We hadn’t grilled snails on the meny today, so we rescued it to on another place!
