slug sex

In the comments to my last post, Reg mentioned slugs

I may be phobic about slugs, but slugs think slugs are great, and what I think of them is neither here nor there in terms of their real value in creation.

Right on, man.

It reminded me of this video, to which I was introduced by students this past winter, and which features David Attenborough, who is, just by the way, the perfect man. Smart, silly, and comfortable talking about slime.

“When an individual is looking for a partner, it gives its trail of slime a special taste that advertises the fact.”

Don’t we all, don’t we all.

Do watch the video. It’s 4 minutes that will enhance your quality of life.
