The first time that I saw a banana slug was when I was visiting my parents in Portland, Oregon. I was in collegeThey were on sabatical, and the first place that they took me was Multnomah Falls off Highway 84 outside of Portland. As I was approaching the bridge that was half way up, I saw this long brown slug gliding across the path. It looked like a 10 day old banana.
