This bright yellow slug is found throughout the moist forests of the Pacific coast. Growing to a maximum size of 10 inches long and a quarter pound in weight, the banana slug is the second largest slug in the world. The large opening on the mantle is called a pneumostone, which leads to a simple lung, and the large top tentacles detect light while the lower tentacles detect smell. In the forest, the slug fills the ecological niche of decomposer, recycling forest detrition into rich soil and spreading seeds and spores.
