:: An Insight into the Natural World II :: Lets see the Invertebrate Wild Creatures that visit, or live in your backyard, front yard or just come onto your property (farm, etc.). Any type of Invertebrate animal is okay, e.g. Insects (butterflies, moths, bees, wasps, etc), Spiders, Scorpions, Centipedes, Millipedes, Snails, etc. You may like to view this as an ad-hoc survey of the bugs and other creepy-crawlies that you live with (sometimes unwittingly).

This Banana slug was found on the forest floor in Butano Redwoods State Park (California, USA). Banana slugs (Ariolimax columbianus) are common in the dense coastal forests of Northern California, Oregon and north. Their color can range from yellow to orange, with or without black spots. They can grow to 10" (25 cm) in length. When at rest, they retract their antennae (?). A shot like this is a moving target - at macro distances they move very fast.
