Newly discovered species


Long-tailed slug

Found only in the state of Sabah in Borneo, the long-tailed slug was first described as a new species in 2008.

Somewhat intermediate in appearance between a slug and a snail, the long-tailed slug has a small, partially visible shell.

It is known to fire harpoon-like ‘love darts’ at its mate, giving it the nickname of ‘ninja slug’.
