Banana Slug (Ariolimax columbianus) on a fern--Redwood National Park, California. This native slug is found in moist coastal rainforest belt (including redwood forests). The tips of the upper tentacles have light-sensitive eyespots. They are air-breathing slugs with a single lung which opens externally via a pneumostome. Banana slugs consume detritus (dead organic matter) recycling nutrients in the ecosystem.
