Banana slugs are land slugs (mollusks) that are found on the Pacific Coast of the United States- all the way from Southern Alaska to Santa Cruz, California.
Banana slugs get their name because of their banana-like color, although there are some that are green and brown.
Banana slugs are the second largest slugs in the world and can be up to 10-inches long!
Banana slugs have two pairs of tentacles that help them sense the world around them.
Banana slugs have only one lung for breathing.
Banana slugs coat themselves with a thick, slimey, mucous so they do not dehydrate (They have to have moisture to live).
