Intimate Slugs

Being hermaphrodites, slugs possess both male and female organs. However, it cannot simply mate with itself.

When the Leopard Slug(Limax maximus) finds a partner, they dangle off an overhang in a spiraling embrace. The slugs then extend their genitalia, and entwine them. Sperm is exchanged between the membranes, fertilising both slugs.
