Banana Slugs are all over the Pacific Northwest, where DTY goes to school. In a couple of weeks there will be several more of them about her campus; there is a chance one might be lost on library shelves or some such place. She is hoping that more will make their way West to keep these company in the future. That will happen, but she gets a pair of yellow and black socks first. (This makes medal numbers six, seven, eight, and nine for those of you trying to keep track.)
I hope they don't really eat that quarter, she needs as many of those a she can get for her laundry at school. Maybe a slug will get left in the laundry room if it isn't careful.
