Our first creepy thing topic is the banana slug! We’ve encountered banana slugs on our hikes in the redwoods and at the California and Oregon coast. These creepy things are actually quite beautiful when you take a look at them up close. They move so slowly that you can avoid them if you want to, so they really aren’t to be feared as creatures. Learning how they play a vital role in keeping the forest floor clean and tidy is one way to show their value and necessity in the whole forest ecosystem.
