Black Arion

Black Arion
This is the Black Arion or European Black Slug, an invasive species here in the Pacific Northwest. It was photographed at Goose Rock in Deception Pass State Park at the base of a tree. It was nearly six inches (15 cm) long. The hole on the side is the breathing hole and the "horns" are actually eye stalks. Though a pest I left it to go its way.

An impressive slug and good information. I hope these don't cause as many problems as usually seems the way with invasive species.

I did a bit of research on this thing. Very interesting! From Wikipedia:
"Arion ater was used as grease to lubricate wooden axle-trees or carts in Sweden. This use is documented since at least the 18th century."

It has spread here Finland too and we are often reminded in media to kill those slugs when ever we see them and dispose the bodies carefully (same with some foreign flowers)

At first I thought it a log, never the less a great shot -- even though it be a slug.
