Huge, bright yellow banana slugs are the celebrities of the slug world. They're so beloved that they're even a mascot for University of California, Santa Cruz. But their best attribute isn't their pretty looks. According to Mother Nature Network, it's their slime. It uses its slime to slide across the ground from point A to point B. And for acrobatics!
