Hanging from mucous ropes… glowing translucent orbs… this mating ritual of the pulmonata order is totally gross and breathtakingly beautiful at the same time. What really amazes me is that the slugs take the shape of a DNA strand – how’s that for nested scales?

    That was amazing! I’m not sure if it was the mood-setting background music or what, but I found those little guys rather tender and sweet. And the fact that they are both male…
    That’s another blog entirely.

    This is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Life changing, no doubt.

    They are not both male, per say. They’re hermaphrodites.
