2 to 4cm juveniles
The tropical leather leaf slug, scientifically known as Laevicaulis alte, is native to parts of Africa and is now also found in regions like India, Sri Lanka, and other parts of Southeast Asia, as well as being introduced to many other tropical and subtropical regions worldwide where it is considered a pest. It's known for its distinctive, dark grey body with a lighter cream or yellow stripe. The leather leaf slug can reach about 4cm in length. For those interested in keeping glubby as a pet, it requires a dryer environment than many other pest slugs and snails. The terrarium should be well-ventilated and kept lightly moist but not overly wet with pieces of bark under which the glubby can hide. Glubby feeds on a variety of fruits, vegetables, and decaying plant matter, making it relatively easy to care for. Observing this slug can be quite interesting due to its unique appearance and behaviour. The first thing you will notice about the glubby is that it is not slimy. Instead the top of its body has a slightly sticky feel to it. It is quite solid and not overly squishy like other slugs and snails. Only a narrow strip down the centre of the underside of the slug (the foot) is slimy. This is an adaptation to living in hot dry areas. The Tropical leather leaf slug or Glubby is a fascinating creature for anyone interested in a low-maintenance, unusual pet.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail- it’s a priority that your critters are safe & snugly packed.

Ordering pets online can be nerve-wracking, we get it. Our 7-Day live guarantee is our way to ease nerves over the purchasing process.

We’re confident in the quality husbandry, shipping, and packaging of our livestock. On the rare occasion an animal arrives in poor condition, we will provide credit for the cost of that animal. If all animals in the shipment arrive in poor condition, we will also provide credit for the postage.

We try to make it as easy as possible to help any unwell critters, and ensure you can get your money back. There are a couple of steps to go through before a refund can be issued.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.

3. We typically respond within 24 hours, but please allow 1-3 working days for a response. Once it’s confirmed that you are eligible for a refund, we’ll get process the credit to your account.

We’ll need this information to reach us within 7 days after you’ve received your pet. We cannot provide any live guarantee to animals that have been refused, returned, or not collected.
