Slug eggs. Close-up of the eggs (white) of a slug that have been laid in soil. Slugs are a type of gastropod mollusc. They are hermaphrodites, having both female and male reproductive organs. During mating they encircle each other and sperm is exchanged through their protruded genitalia. A few days later around 30 eggs are laid.
