Are slugs getting bigger?

I think this is possibly the biggest slug I have ever seen:


It's nearly as long as my secateurs!!


  1. I regularly get slugs as big as this and even longer; I'm told they help make good compost, just not from my strawberries please!

  2. I've now found out that this is Leopard Slug, and they eat other slugs, which might make them "good" slugs, but I still don't want one climbing up my leg!!
