Well I found one in my backyard that looked like it was getting ready to die. It was all dried up and had been on the move for a while judging my the slime marks. So I put him in a container with moist coco fiber. Well 2 days later I have 8 clear eggs about the size of airsoft bbs. Anyone have any info? I know they feed off of vegetation. I put a carrot in there but I don't thing that will cut it. I'll post pics when I can borrow a camera.

Well they are pests really I guess
so I wuld say they will eat pretty much anything
But if you want the best of the bst I would look up Giant african land snail diets
and I assume the same diet would work fr a slug

Give 'em various fruits and veggies. Softer probably better.

Any idea what species? We get some huge banana and leopard slugs out here, and they're pretty cool.

The snails that I kept as a kid often made a terrible smell if not cleaned often. I do like how pretty the banana slugs are though.

i kept a couple of tan-colored slugs before. apparently people here in our country are unfamiliar of slugs and would refer to it as leeches. such escape artists they are lol

The great grey slugs, limax maximus, will feed on most plant matter but also do feed on a great deal of fungus and mold.
