    1. The puffball would have started out completely solid. The slug ate its way through the puffball, excavating it with each bite! Posted 2 months ago, modified 2 months ago

        1. I peeked inside and it looked like it was almost completely hollowed out! That is definitely a smart slug. Posted 2 months ago
