Canadian Geographic - Citizen Scientist Aleta Karstad

"Aleta Karstad walks from her bedroom to her living room/gallery/laboratory to drown the last of the giant slugs. Ten centimetres long when fully extended, this Arion is mostly orange, with black ommatophores (eye-stalks) and a red-striped fringe at the edge of its foot. ... With the sensitive hands of an artist, Karstad lays the slug on a sheet of Plexiglas to take photos and measurements. She shoots video and sketches as 18 eggs pearl slowly out of the hermaphroditic creature’s motionless body."
