    Interesting, was the slug actually responding to music, or were they playing the music in sync with the snail's movements?

    That's funny! I wonder if someone was touching the back of the snail in time to the "move it"?

    Great. Even slugs have better dance moves than me.

    Somehow I think they were blowing from the back.

    It looks as if the slug is responding to the sound vibrations moving through either the air, or through the glass/plastic that it is sitting on.

    It seems to respond more to the deeper frequencies of the songs harmonics.

    It could be a natural response to a percieved threat from the deeper resonance.

    Or.......the container could be tickling it's belly with the vibrations from the vocalizations.

    A slug vibrator? :yuck:

    Edit for: "No where on the forum is speculation of this sort allowed." ........ "Evo"

    Seems to be three or four speculations in the above replies.....Hmmmmm.

    Favorites or a double standard?

    Don't worry about the ban ........I am GONE.

    Good Riddance! The last thing we need is a self-professed expert who paradoxically admits that they have no education in the fields they are an expert in.

    As for the slugs; :rofl:
