slug reference.jpg
6 KB, 362x162
At the start of Winter (the first cold day in North Florida) I found a slug-like organism. It basically looked like pic related except it had absolutely no eyes. The back of the thing was very smooth and almost leathery. It was absolutely not a fungus because it moved across my windshield like a slug. It also responded to touch, it curled around my finger. While at work I did a quick little taxonomy check myself and could not find it under any North Florida Slug Identification Guides.

leech?

Why the fuck would you be stupid enough to let it do that?

You probably had a nice injection of parasitic larvae or some toxin.

So enjoy losing your arm from that you stupid fucker.

>>7836278
not a leech

>>7836279
It looked like it had a topside (Black) and a bottom (yellow) i didn't actually expect it to be a living organism when I first grabbed it and it was also extremely slow

I think it feeds off of detritus, but if this is the case, why did it make its way halfway past my windshield in the middle of dry, cold December?

I cannot specify how basic this organism was.

it was black on top

It was yellow on the bottom

It was slightly slimy.

There were no eyes, mouth, ears, nose, legs, or anything visible, even under close inspection.

It was a slug without eyes, you retard
it lost them to a bird or something

fucking occam's razor

I honestly thought I would find intelligent life on /sci/

You've proven that my aspirations are worthless.

>>
>>7836374
again, NOT a leech

I do remember specifying that it had no visible mouth.

>>7836275
Flatworm?

It sounds like some kind of platyhelminth

Maybe one of these? They are an invasive species that eat snails and worms.
