Do slugs drown?
 Serious question - do slugs drown if beds are actually under water? We had over an inch of rain this afternoon and they say every cloud has a silver lining...

 Thanks for that... needed a good chuckle...The thing I keep telling myself is... at least I'm not the only one!

Apparently, yes!
According to this US websitehttp://ipm.ncsu.edu/AG136/slugintr.htmlslugs can withstand brief periods of immersion under water, although they drown after several hours.
