I got one of those in a pot I moved but it was a sickly shade of green and yes it was hu-normous. So big and fat that I had to call my OH to look for himself. Probably the size of a sausage and it didnt shrink much when I disturbed it either.

Wow! What a monster! Don't tell OL for goidness sake she's only just mastering dispatching the little ones bless her!

Lot of gunk comes out of the big ones when you despatch them

I dispatched loads yesterday as I was uncovering an area for planting. That new spade is a great weapon...

Aaaagh!  Not a thread to read over brekkie.

We get huge ones like that 'pairing up' in the lawn - I leave them alone as they eat the little ones that do the real damage - don't think I'd be able to leave one on an alpine bed tho

Fairy I prefer my hand fork, I sneak in close and get them

Is it porridge this morning Verdun ?

One is bad enough Dove, pairing up, I don't allow that behaviour in this garden

Dont the big ones do any damage, I have a pet snail, in a tank, it is about 6inches long and has a footplate the size of my hand, you want to see him eat his way through a lettuce!

I don't mind them in the garden and will happily squash them but that's too much.
