Ah. Okay.

I was thinking of that radio commercial done by the same people who did this:



...only with a boy and his slug.

I have actually seen some by the weir in Doane Valley at Palomar Mountain State Park in Northern San Diego County. All the geographic relief and micro climates we have around here means you get a lot of plant and animal species you wouldn't expect this far south.

I can't find it, but it went something like this:

Dramatis Personae:
Steven: a perfectly normal ten year old boy
The Banana Slug: with a voice like Droopy Dog
The Mom: typical mom.

The Banana Slug: Steven...Steeeven...

Steven: What? Who's there?

The Banana Slug: down here, Steven.

Steven: EWWW! What are you? Some kind of yellow booger?

The Banana Slug (disappointed): I'm a banana slug, Steven.

Steven: what do you want?

The Banana Slug (brightly): I'm your sense of adventure! I've come from forest to tell you we want you back! Remember the trees, the babbling brook, that fort you made out of sticks? We all miss you.

Steven: I went to the forest last year.

The Banana Slug (irritably): I'm a slug, Steven, it took me a long time to get here.

Steven: Oh, sorry. I really did like the forest.

The Banana Slug: Great, shall we go?

Steven: Absolutely! HEY MOM!!!

Mom: Yes, Steven? What do you OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT THING IN YOUR HAND???

Steven: That's my sense of Adventure! He says we need to go the forest, can we? Please?

Finis.

I live in a rainy area so there are lots of slugs. Here the most common are black. The There is another common one that is mottled green and black, that looks like a slug wearing a camouflage uniform - think it is called a leopard slug. We have the banana slugs too. They can get huge. I have seen one over 8 inches long. In rare occasions I have seen albino banana slugs. Instead of being pure white, they are a bit translucent so you can see black stuff - maybe their last meal? - inside of them.

The strangest slug I have seen was far away during a walking tour of the Welsh coast. It was mostly orange.
