Mollusc porn!

Perhaps some of you don't like slugs, but ever since I read about the mating habits of this one (when I was at school) I have hoped to see it. Just my luck that I should spot this couple getting it together from my front door frame on an evening when I really needed to have an early night for an early start next morning. Took a couple of snaps then had to leave them to it.

You can read all about it on line - look up Limax maximus. They normallly 'do it' dangling from trees (how athletic! Laughing ).

good snap,amazing critters but as you suspected i dont like em to the point where genocide seems reasonable (only where i grow veg, anywhere else the slimey hoard are delightful)

the dangling thing is rather clever and well worth looking out for.

It certainly is. I'm not sure why these two decided on my door frame - it's not as if I don't have lots of trees. Maybe the moment just arrived! I was surprised that there was no residue the next morning. They must re-absorb the slime rope and the fixing point, I assume. I wish I had had more time to look at the spectacle.

I wish they would absorb the slime elsewhere! Good picture Buzzy, and amazing to see it.

I hadn't known how they did the deed until I saw this clip years ago
