When I moved a plank by the quail run I found this huge (~9cm) slug. It’s apparently a Limax maximus, or tiger slug:

Limax maximus is the largest slug introduced to New Zealand from Europe. … one of the largest kinds of keeled air-breathing land slug in the world

Fat pale brown slug with black spots and dots. Slug next to my hand - it’s much longer than my little finger.
