The Slimes - Snails and Slugs
Slugs and snails come from eggs!
Slugs are hermaphrodites, having both female and male reproductive organs. Slugs have no skeletons, and crawl around on what looks like one big huge foot, and they only have one lung.
To learn more watch this video and have a look at the DK FindOut! page on Slugs and Snails
Hedgehogs, newts, toads and some birds, like song thrushes, love to eat slugs and snails!
