Nature Tuesday: Crabs and Slugs

This was taken a couple of weeks ago. We went to Palina River (Roxas City, Philippines) for a tour with my wife’s relatives who just arrived from Canada. After an hour of river tour, we stopped on a shallow part of the beach.

Palina is an estuary – where the river meets the sea. The shallow water is littered with shelled marine life. My 4-year old son gathered some hermit crabs and some slugs that I haven’t seen before.

While I am quite familiar with the hermit crab, I don’t know the shelled slugs that he gathered.

  • Do you know the name of this slug/shell?

    • Yes
    • No
