Leopard Slugs were introduced to America, but are now common. They grow to four inches. They are usually grayish yellow with black spots or bands, but once in a while one can be found in pure white. Often they are wrinkled. Leopard Slugs have four tentacles on their head; two long ones and two short ones. Leopard Slugs eat leaves, flowers, and fruits of plants. They will also eat mushrooms, carrion (dead animals), and will regularly hunt other slugs.
Leopard Slugs live in fields, woods, and gardens. They prefer damp, shady places. In daylight, you can find them under rocks, logs, and similar places. These slugs are mostly nocturnal, but will sometimes come out on rainy days.
Leopard Slugs are hermaphroditic, both slugs will be able to lay eggs after mating. Leopard Slug eggs are clear and laid in groups of over 100. New slugs will hatch the following Spring. Leopard Slugs typically live up to three years.
