I watched some info on Springwatch this year about slugs and snails. Mostly pertaining to mating habits, but nothing regrows.
They get around on a muscle that is just like a giant foot and they are both sexes, tending to do it with each other at the same time. Also, the boys bits come out of their heads and if they get tangled up, which can happen, the other slug or snail simply bites off the offending item... and they don't regrow it.
After that, they get to just be the girl.
So, that information has made me less stressed when I chop them in half with my secateurs because they are probably not feeling much pain as we might..because other bits and pieces get bitten off all the time...right?
