Are these leopard slugs?

Posted: 13/05/2013 at 16:58

they are like the ones that came into the kitchen via a damp opening in the wall.They are very light with spots like a tiger and I don't know if they are good for the gardenbut are good for wildlife to eat,. but they certainly like dog food.Have to be careful as someone pointed out about some lung disease they care to dogs,don't know if that's true.

Can anyone tell me what this is please?
