Should I be worried? He had been outside for the day and when I went to check on him he had like a black substance around his mouth and something black and mushy on his nail? And there was a dead slug near by!😐

Hi Katie,

He'll be fine they do eat them every now and then. :)

I saw one of my adult females eat a worm the other day. She saw it out of the corner of her eye and before I knew it she was over to it and it was eaten. Never seen her move so fast. It was gone in a flash. Never seen this before.
