Decorative Slug

This critter trundled across the driveway after a shower wetted the area:

Orange slug on asphalt

Orange slug on asphalt

They do some damage in the garden, but we let them alone elsewhere…

    Woah! Are those things common where you are, or is this orange one a rarity? The ones around here are brown / gray but they do have a nifty leopard print thing going on.

      Mostly, all we see are the drab ones, too. This gadget was so conspicuous out there on the driveway that I had to take a picture of it…

    I’m trying to decide if that’s a baby carrot with eyes or a slug that just fought through a nest of Cheetos.

      My money is on a mob of attack Cheetos…
