I dont like slugs at all :shock:
they are slimy and yucky and eat my Hosta :(

On an other note
I was wondering if any of you have observed an exceptionally high number of Deformed Wing Virus in Bumble bees and honey bees or any other bees?
I am shocked at how many I am seeing on a daily basis

If insects would be as big as mammals, aliens must have come!

Heck yeah! But they still rule the world, though. :D Did you know the mass extinction that took out the dinos barley phased insects (at order level, anyway.) Take that vertebrates!

MrMistery probably knows, but it never hurts being stated again.

Were not scorpians at one time bigger than your favorite pet? I seem to remember reading that at one time, scorpians were like 1.2 meters long, and some centipedes rivaled the length of a car.
