Slug

Description:

Slug is a common name that is normally applied to any gastropod mollusc that lacks a shell, has a very reduced shell, or has a small internal shell. The common name "slug" is most frequently applied to air-breathing land slugs, while the marine forms are usually known as sea slug

Habitat:

The soft, slimy bodies of slugs are prone to desiccation, so land-living slugs are confined to moist environments and must retreat to damp hiding places when the weather is dry.
