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...

I certainly hope so...

 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 website

slugs can withstand brief periods of immersion under water, although they drown after several hours.
