Elise Gravel adds The Slug to her series on Disgusting Creatures (fly, worm, rat, head lice, spider and toad), each of which is shown to have a useful purpose in nature.

This shell-less mollusc shows up on land and in the ocean, but we mainly meet the tentacled land slug here. It's covered in mucus ('kind of like snot!') and can produce more when needed to slip away from predators.

So what are slugs good for? They break down old plant and animal matter, transforming nature's trash into nutrients. Meet The Slug!
