Leopard Slug

Limax maximus


Also known as Great grey slug, this mollusc is variable in color and patterns and when adult, it can reach between 12 and 20 cm in length. Here, I suppose a juvenile of Leopard slug, mainly grey with some black lines; and about 6 to 7 cm long.


This is a common European species, originating from Mediterranean and today found in many habitats, but always close to habitations. Here, observed under the bark of a dead log, in a forested area of the town park; lowlands of lake Geneva (lac Leman) region, foothills of Jura mountain range.
