Even gastropods have dreams, it seems. Though slugs and snails have no true eyes to speak of, what few light-sensitive cells they have on the tips of their tentacles lead them on, towards the light.
Slugs are so delicate and with defenses so few that it feels like a miracle that they exist at all.
This is but the first of many critters I managed to capture in Wayanad. With more to come over the next few days and weeks. A Hat-Tip to RASTA for hosting us and a big shoutout to the lovely campus that they have.
