Monday night when I returned home from work I noticed two slugs behaving oddly (namely that they seemed to notice each other’s existence). After briefly looking at them, I decided they were in the early stages of mating. Not being a huge fan of slugs, I found this somewhat unattractive. But on the other hand, it’s science in action and therefore also interesting.
My response then was to set up a camera and do a timelapse video of the… “encounter”.
So, if copulating gastropods aren’t your thing, feel free to disregard the rest of the post. Or, if you’re curious, continue on to see the timelapse.
