BLACK SLUG

Picture of Black_Slug

The black slug (Arion ater) is a large native British slug growing to a length of up to 20 cm. It varies in colour, and can be white, red, orange, grey brown although black is the most usual colour, often with an orange fringe. There is no keel, and the skin is coarse and granular and there is a large, obvious pneumostome (breathing hole) on the righ side towards the head. The sole is pale, sometimes orange, and the mucus is white. The black slug may rock from side to side when disturbed!. The black slug is familiar to gardeners because of its spectacular size, and is rarely as destructive as smaller species of slugs, but can still cause damage in spring to seedlings of many kinds. Later, when its preferred diet of rotting vegetation, fungi, manure and even dead animals is more readily available, it causes little damage in the garden. The true British black slug, Arion ater has been almost completely displaced by a new hybrid species Arion ater/rufus, although in colder parts of the British Isles the true Arion ater species can still be found.
