THE HOT PINK SLUGS OF MOUNT KAPUTAR NP

Australian Geographic - - Wild Australia -

Th­ese un­usual, near-flu­o­res­cent slugs grow to 20cm, mak­ing them stand out against the greens and browns of Mount Kaputar. They are re­stricted to a moist, 1000ha patch of habi­tat on an ex­tinct vol­cano near Narrabri. Gas­tropods here – in­clud­ing the Kaputar can­ni­bal snail and Kaputar hairy snail – can be spot­ted year-round, but most of­ten ap­pear af­ter rain.
