Slug = disgusting, ick, kill it with fire
Slug Case = Pretty!
Slug + Slug Case = Snail. Acceptable as long as the slimy bits don't touch me.
Yeah, pretty overcomes ick. I think the way people react to snails depends a lot on context (e.g. whether the slimy bits are poking out).We have some lovely snailshells round here. Also some weirdly-coloured and beautiful slugs. They all want to eat my garden, though.
Garden eating is a problem, yeah. When they're not eating my garden, I like slugs. They have such cute widdle eyestalks, plus it's neat watching them leave a trail.I once read in a kids' science magazine that some weirdly-coloured slugs are normal-coloured slugs with weirdly-coloured parasites showing through. The parasites' colouration is a form of anti-camouflage, trying to get themselves eaten by their primary (avian, I think) hosts. I don't remember which areas they said the parasites lived in. (I've never seen any weirdly-coloured slugs myself.)

Not everyone thinks slugs are ick. Somewhere in the family photos, there's one of me holding a couple of giant slugs (banana slugs?) in the Oregon rainforest. Well, holding isn't quite the right word, but they're sitting on my hands.
Too true, sadly. Reminds me, U wanna see something astonishing look up video of common eastern slugs mating. No sh--! Irridescent twining frills.
