Beautiful little spheres!

Asked October 24, 2017, 6:15 PM EDT

I was digging along the edge of a bed and found these beautiful spheres. Covered them up again and hope I didn’t hurt them.

We agree that they are beautiful.
What you have there are slug eggs.

If you are on Facebook, 'like' the Home and Garden Information Center page. We recently shared a photo very similar to yours.

Thanks for the id. Last week I saw 2 slugs hanging from a maple tree one above the other on a foot long slimy string. They are creepy animals but I leave them in peace.
