It’s their time to slime!

Banana slugs are the yin to the redwoods’ yang—tiny and cute in world of giants. And now is their time to slime!

We’re going to put one of these slug celebrities on a new League sticker, and we need your help deciding which gets the honor. In return for your vote, we’ll send you one of the new stickers for free.

Banana slugs aren’t the only creature that thrives under the cooling canopy of the tall trees, but they may be the most fascinating. And these five fun characters are bringing a lot to the table.
