2020-08-15

Small species of slug usually with dark colour, but there are also lighter specimens. Generally not so dark as Laevicaulis alte. There can be light stripe on the back. They prefer green vegetables (lettuce, cucumber...) in their diet. You should be careful with the size of the air holes in the box with hatchlings, which should be very small, as babies are able to escape through unbelievable small holes.
