Giant Pinks Slugs Of Mount Kaputar

 Located in the alpine forest of the isolated mountaintop, the giant, fluorescent pink slugs grow up to 20 centimeters long and crawl out of their hiding only during rainy nights to feed off the mould and moss on the trees. But plants aren’t the only thing they feed on. The Triboniophorus aff. graeffei, as it is scientifically called, is a carnivorous, cannibal land snail that roam the mountaintop in search of other vegetarian snails.
