Worm or Slug?

I was just outside and I saw what I thought was a worm crawling around

But then I looked closer and it had tentacles!

So my question… is this a worm or a slug?

  1. Looks like the snails that carry rat lung worm disease…they don’t really have shells. Those things are eyes, not tentacles.

  2. slug

  3. rat lungworm spreader!

  4. A slug. Can you tell me who I can contact to find out if the lizard I have is the one that is supposed to be extinct?

    • Mary, you can call a few people: Hawaii Dept of Agriculture, USDA Fish and Wildlife, Big Island Invasive Species Committee to see if you can get your lizard identified. Although we (BIISC) specialize in invasive species, we would be more than happy to help you if you had questions about your lizard.

  5. Looks like a slug. Worm (annelids) have segmented bodies. No segments: not an annelid.
