And this good looking fella shares my sentiment. Whit snapped some pictures of these huge slugs while we were outside a church in Neudstat (Wied), Germany waiting for a friend's wedding to begin. This creature (Arion - rufus for you slug buffs?) really captures the ALL of the excitement that normally resides in this sleepy German village. We took the opportunity to liven things up for the weekend we were in town. Thank you for your hospitality, Neudstat (Wied)! We're sorry that you almost had to kick us out of your 5 room hotel/bowling alley/restaurant/bar and glad that you didn't... it was the only hotel in town.
