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.
