My head torch caught sight of a huge slug, about 7 inches on the gravel path so I went back for my camera, only about half a minute later I returned and its body was only 2 inches long but had all its intestines behind it, must have just died. I wanted to examine it so I scooped it up into a clean dry jar from the recycling . As it was by then such a mess I put the jar with lid into the rubbish, and forgot about it.
A few days later when reviewing my photos I noticed some turquoise dots on the bottom of the jar, these must have been fragments of slug pellets (being the same colour) excreted. Rotating the picture it sure looks like some letters amongst the dots......spooky!
