Default Slugs spinning a thread


We were sitting under our arbor, when we noticed an odd object spinning
in front of us, and it turned out to be a small brown slug dangling by
a thread that it was spinning. It descending at a few millimetres a
second until it hit something, by which time the thread was c. 1m long.
That was new to us, and I am at a loss to know how to search for it,
as the obvious words merely pick up the gun nuts' witterings.

Any clues appreciated.


Regards,
Nick Maclaren.

Mating slugs, or those about to mate, do that.

Thanks. I had forgotten that. But this was definitely lowering itself,
just as spiders do.
