the leopard slug is one of the largest kinds of keeled air-breathing land slug in the world. The adult slug measures 10-20 cm (4-8 in) in length and is generally a light greyish or grey-brown with darker spots and blotches, although the coloration and exact patterning of the body of this slug species is quite variable.
The slugs are almost always found near human habitation — usually in lawns, gardens, cellars or in other damp areas.
