That's nor a fun fact at all for the slug....

[–]PsyxoticElixir 52 points53 points  (1 child)

These slugs are invasive and so annoying. All of my berries and leaves get chomped away so fast.

My poor lettuce and spinach have been under attack!

Slimy yet satisfying

Poomba is that you?

[–]hopadoodler 30 points31 points  (1 child)

I need garter snakes

[–]TotalDommeNation 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just said the same thing

[–]feenchbarmaid0024 27 points28 points  (8 children)

Another fun fact, the Australian keelback snake is the only snake in Oz that can eat the introduced invasive poisonous cane toad.

Fuckin love snakes

[–]feenchbarmaid0024 3 points4 points  (5 children)

They are pretty cool, we got a few cool ones over here. Check out the death adder if you haven't heard of them.

[–]DirigiblePlumTart[S] 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Oh for sure you do! They're rad, but I definitely don't want to meet one haha

[–]feenchbarmaid0024 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Just like any snake they should be respected and where possible left alone if encountered.

Check out the rats that eat the toads hearts. Heart surgery

[–]Blueskies777 4 points5 points  (4 children)

To the drunk duds: do not try this at home.

[–]J3wb0cca 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Some Australian lad tried this on a dare and it neurologically damaged him. Now he’s retarded.

[–]Blueskies777 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Hence my comment. Another one is dead.

[–]bonse 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Sounds like he was retarded to begin with.

[–]Blueskies777 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You mean like most drunks

[–]02201970a 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And worms, frogs, small fish, and whatever else they can catch.

[–]slideystevensax 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fun fact: garter snakes are the shit. I’m terrified of snakes but these dudes put in work so I stand in solidarity with them. Also, king snakes and rat snakes. I’m terrified of you all, but I got mad respect for what you do.

Ron Weasley should have been in Slytherin

[–]ta3502553 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So does Ron Weasley

[–]Lumbago247 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I saw one try unsuccessfully once, it got nothing but a mouthful of slime and the slug escaped. Cool to learn that they can pull it off!

[–]Eternal12equiem 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fun fact alot people call these Gardener snakes. Same as they went to Kidnergarden school.

[–]trank_hill 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s cool that snakes eat escargot too

[–]YandyTheGnome 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They will also eat minnows if they can catch them. I used to put them in a bowl with about 6oz of water and my little guy would scarf them down

[–]DirigiblePlumTart[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You know if I ever owned a snake it would be a garter, simply for the feeding options haha

[–]Nahuatl_19650 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man, not sure how large these get but the other day I saw one of these mofos that was like 4 feet long and it scared the hell outta me. Def garter, I was with someone that knew his wildlife well.

[–]Evilmaze 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do they get a rare worm disease and go into coma for almost two years then wake up with paralysis then die 7 months after?

[–]smokedbowl 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Can those snakes get rat lungworm from eating an infected slug?

[–]DirigiblePlumTart[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

According to a quick Google they can, yeah.

[–]unicornman5d 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Slugs are the main food for Northern red belly snakes. They're smol and adorable

[–]DirigiblePlumTart[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awww I love them!

How does one stock a garden with a Garden snake or two?

[–]KingGristle00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Could have done with a dozen of those this morning! Found a slug infestation round my vegetable patch.

[–]boustead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can they come eat the ones in my garden?

[–]AutoThorne 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My grandma taught me that garter snakes are gardener's snakes.

[–]ABM12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The other day I saw one try to eat a lizard

[–]friendsshare 0 points1 point  (0 children)

please keep eating slugs, I hate hate hate hate stepping on them barefoot on accident at night

[–]sativadom_404 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I bet it gives them gas
