Visitors and residents in New South Wales, Australia who venture to the peak of Mount Kaputar get to witness giant, pink slugs.

Slugs are known to be slow-moving, slimy and a little creepy. The ones we usually see in our yards are small in size.

However visitors and residents in New South Wales, Australia who venture to the peak of Mount Kaputar get to witness a completely different kind of slug. To put it simply, the creatures are terrifying.

The massive, bright pink mollusks were recently identified. A ranger with the National Parks and Wildlife Service, named Michael Murphy stated “Giant pink slugs are about 20 centimeters long, only found on top of Mount Kaputar. On a good morning, you can walk around and see hundreds of them, but only in that one area. As bright pink as you can imagine, that's how pink they are.”

He claimed that the mountaintop environment is pristine for the slugs, giving them plenty of mold and moss to feed on due to the ample damp forestry. This particular area is known to have some other creepy crawlers. Numerous cannibalistic snails also reside on the mountaintop.
