Veronicella sloanei
Veronicella sloanei is also called pancake snail because of the flat appearance of this slug. They occur in Barbados, Bermuda, Dominican Republic and Jamaica, but have also turned up in Florida where they are a pest. The color can vary, but usually the animals are brownish with lighter or darker markings. They like to hide under a lot and are especially active when it is dark. They are quite fast and with their flat body they also get through small crevices. They can grow up to 12 cm long and about 2 cm wide.
They feed on all kinds of fruits and vegetables. They lay about 30 eggs that are about 5 mm in size. These hatch after about 15 days at a temperature of 24 ° C.
