Thank you Jason. Based on your information, I search and read some articles over the internet. It must be very close to the pancake slug. I have seen 2 similar kinds of slugs in my place. When they are crawling, the one here (in this picture) is thin and long and the other one is much wider up to 2 cm wide and only 6-7 cm long, they are yellowish brown. They are the most common pests here in Manado.

Hi John,
No it is not PN. It is Google. Thank you for letting me know.
Yes I agree with you. It is the strangest one I've ever seen.
Now I am wondering if it really is a Slug? I would ask for help on this one.
Maybe you found a new species! :)
Ours are different too.

Thank you again Telse. Is it an automatic translation by Project Noah? I got your English version in my email. Yes, in Indonesia we call it "lintah". "Siput" refers to snail. This is the first time to me to see a slug with a rather slender body. The more common one is much ticker with about the same length.

Halo John. Aku tidak bisa lebih spesifik, kecuali saya Cari dan Cari. Saya bukan ahli Slug. Aku tahu itu adalah siput meskipun. Lihat peluru di Indonesia. Saya tinggal di Kanada.
