Leopard Slug Limax maximus

Description

I don't know why these mutant Slugs from Skull Island keep invading my little basement greenhouse/lab/insectary "man cave', but this slimy freeloader was HUGE, at just over 6" (see additional photos) when on the crawl and fully extended. As usual, I placed him in a container with a slice of fresh apple, some spinach leaves, and a sprinkle of tropical fish flakes to munch on until I can release him/her tomorrow evening. I might have to knock that off, though - I think they're telling all their slimy pals I'm running a Slug Airbnb with free gourmet eats, haha!

Description

Talk about a great start to the field season! Observed near "Ace's Place" - "hallowed ground" in the NJ Pine Barrens once frequented by the legendary Herpetologist Carl Kauffeld himself, with his adventures in this particular area lovingly detailed in his excellent 1957 work "Snakes and Snake Hunting" in Chapter 3, "Memories of Mount Misery" - a "must read" for any Field Herpetologist worth his/her "scales"! A most excellent day in the the field, with the "most excellent" company - fellow Herpetologists Pete Danch (@jdanch) and Tianqi Huang (@charlieh1596).

County record! Vicinity of Manchester Township, NJ. "Black" Rat Snakes ("Elaphe obsoleta obsoleta") are virtually unknown from the Pine Barrens proper, known only from the fringes of the region and the Inner Coastal Plain in South Jersey. I've sought (and *found*, haha!) the herpetofauna of the Barrens for more than 45 years, and this 53" gravid female "Black" Rat was the LAST species I thought I'd run into on my first adventure there of the season! A truly awesome day in the field with fellow Herpetologists Pete Danch (@jdanch) and Tianqi Huang (@charlieh1596).
