Info

Babylonia zeylanica (Bruguière, 1789)

This slug is a scavanger, eats bristleworms and foodleftovers.
It is as busy as a bee and it plows through the sand.
At feedingtimes it appears very quickly out of the sand and looks for foodleftovers.
If all conditions are optimal, it will live for two years.
