What if slugs are just snails going through a divorce.. “yep she got the house”. On a signboard outside Governor’s Cafe in Dunedin, New Zealand on March 05, 2019. I’ve been waiting for a slug to go with the signboard – this morning I found a very fine slug posted by a WP blogger from Northamptonshire UK…

    1. When we lived in Queenstown and Invercargill we didn’t come across many slugs and snails. After seeing a slug on our bedroom window the other day I suspect there’ll be more than enough in Tapanui!


  1. EW!!! Mostly I am happy to co-exist with the beasties in my garden (with the exception of vine weevils because they eat the roots of my plants). I ignore slugs and snails as best I can but I don’t like the looks of them – too squidgy! We had lots of these in Scotland. Here we have lots of frogs, so maybe they’re eating the slugs and snails.

    1. When it was wet the other day I looked out our bedroom window and there was a long pale slug slithering across the glass and I could see the whole underneath view of it. It was interesting but.. I also felt somewhat imposed on – I have my limits!

      1. Hehe! I know what you mean! I just leave the wildlife to fight it out amongst themselves when it comes to things like that! We had a thrush in our previous garden and there was always a few broken up snail shells on a particular big flat stone. He/she was very welcome!
