Identifying Slugs and Snails
Slugs and snails are not insects but mollusks; they are related to clams and oysters. They occur throughout the United States. Depending on the region of the country they may be from 1 inch to a horrendous 5 inches long. Slugs look like brown, gray, or yellow snails without shells.
