Invertebrates – Kerry Slug
Tuesday, November 15th, 2022
The Kerry slug lives in just a few places in word-southwestern Ireland, Portugal, and Spain. Unlike most slugs, its main habitats are woodlands and fields, rather than urban areas. Overgrazing by sheep, pollution, and loss of habitat have threatened it.
The Kerry slug is dark gray or brown with yellow spots. It has a shield, an internal shell, which protects it, and it is covered in mucus.
