THIS is a slug. I call this type the “pickle slug” cuz it kind of looks like a pickle. When I first moved into the house a few years ago we had the smaller ones all over the front steps at night. Now I rarely look out there for fear of stepping on one. But this the kind I see more often now. On the left of the slug is actually some grass, that is not part of the slug. I have another close up picture but the slug kind of radiated a shine with the flash so it is even more scary.
