Black Slug – Arion ater agg.

Although commonly known as the ‘Black Slug’ the colour ranges from jet black, through chestnut and orange to pale grey and creamy white. The essential difference between slugs and snails is the shell – slugs do not have a shell, but do have a leathery mantle on their backs. The opening on the side is a nostril through which the slug breathes.
