Oddest, Weirdest Thing i have seen with my own eyes

these 2 leopard slugs were hanging on our screen this morning, by a long thick thread of mucus. is that gross? i thought maybe one was giving birth, but once i did some research, discovered they were mating.
i took this little video with our camera, it is almost 3 minutes.
documentary film link is a 4 min video, that explains what is happening.

  2. Did you want to hang a sheet to afford them a little privacy - That was gross and the most amazing part is that you laughed when they fell and went splat - I think I gagged a little at that point!! Maybe you need to sprinkle a little salt on your back patio -
