slimy big yellow slug
Banana slugs are the second biggest slugs on Earth. One of a banana slug's favorite foods is mushrooms. It may sound gross, but banana slugs are very fond of eating feces. Banana slugs spread spores around the forest, so they plant mushrooms. Banana slugs have a home, like a hole in the ground or a crevice in a tree that they live in. Never move a banana slug because they can get lost.
