Alien Species

Neptunian Slugs are edible, slug-like organisms apparently native to planet Neptune. There are two known varieties: the yellow one, which is a key ingredient in Neptunian cuisine; and the purple one, which is known to cause terrible diarrhea, but is sold in food markets anyway.


Normally medium-sized, the Neptunian Slug can inflate to enormous size as a defense mechanism in order to avoid being cooked. These creatures have a striped body, two eyestalks and sharp teeth in their mouths. Like Earth's slugs, they are deflated by salt.

Cultural significance[]

Besides their culinary uses, Neptunian Slugs can also be found in pet shops, indicating that they may be domesticated and kept as pets.
