  1. Of course the real problem is finding some way to distinguish between the evil alien monster slugs on the outside of the Japanese Diet Building and the Japanese politicians inside.

  2. You may have heard of the fat slugs recently identified as Arion vulgaris, aka the superslug/killer slug/Spanish slug, though I think we should just go with "the monster". Last year it was thought the Spanish stealth slug, A. flagellus , was invading our washed-out gardens . The stealth slug has been with us since the WWII and it was believed that our wet summer meant it was on the increase, but it turns out it has a friend – and this friend eats everything.
