The Spanish slug thing was a typical Dail Mail scare story with very little Scientific fact behind it. It was then picked up by other papers and the Interweb and so everyone believed in it. Once you start looking at the science, it soon is apparent theit is nonsense.
Those are Leopard slugs and the are carnivores, they eat other slugs. Mind their slime is HORRIBLE. It will not wash off your hands, even with soap and a scrubbing brush.
