The slug

As far as I could see the slug belongs to the genus Arion, maybe A. lusitanicus. Have a look


I believe the slug is probably edible too.

Like some mushrooms, I suspect edible … once.

This is eaten in parts of Mexico. The Myxo, not the slug. It is mixed with scrambled eggs.

Really nice slug.

Begs the question: which is more glutinous?
