A Day in the Life of a Scooper … Slugs like dog “doody”????

Another reason to not like slugs! Last week as I approached my client’s patio, I thought I saw something yellowish on top of several piles of dog poo.  I hadn’t had my coffee yet, so I thought maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me. Then I  thought Buster must have had a change in diet — corn, maybe; or eaten something exciting like flowers or yellow pages from the phone book? However, on closer inspection, I discovered that Buster must have an interesting diet, allright, because these bright yellow slugs were right on top the poo having a feast. Who would have thought that slugs like animal feces? Yuk! I did a quick search on Wikipedia, and sure enough, it says that a banana slug’s diet includes “animal droppings”. I can handle scooping feces, but for some reason, seeing those slugs on top, just GROSSED ME OUT!
