My family and other animals (if fancy fish weren't enough).

E: Mummy look I've found a slug.

M: What?

E: A slug Mummy, I've found a slug. On the floor. Here.

M: Really? Where? Not in the house? Not first thing in the morning? Oh Lord.

E: Yes Mummy, and look. It is definitely a leopard slug, it has spots on its back. Mummy?

M: Great. 

E: It's a lovely one.

M: (Thinking: How very Gerald Durrell of you darling). Did the slug get rid of the ants?

E: No. Slugs eat greens.

M: I need a coffee. And some kitchen roll. And a camera, that's huge...
