Ukkoetana / Black Keel Back Slug

Limax cinereoniger

The largest European land snail 10-20 cm.
It is almost exclusively a forest dweller and feeds on algae and mushrooms.
The colour pattern is very variable: colour may stretch from very light grey "ghost" specimens
until almost completely black animals.
