Hi all! I'm Maddy. I'm excited to have found this forum. I accidentally acquired a tiny baby slug via a plant I brought home from a garden store. I began reading about slug habitats online, trying to figure out where to place the baby so it would have its best chance at finding a food source, but after reading about all the parasitization and predation that happens to slugs in the wild, I decided it would have a better chance at survival if I set up a habitat and kept it as a pet. I've since fallen in love with terrestrial gastropods and am excited to continue keeping them. Our little slug is fascinating to watch! I had no idea these little guys were such complex and active creatures!
