This is really cool. What strikes me as the best part of this is that it can solve the "what to do during the winter when there are no slugs" problem - freeze a few slugs or just slug puree and use it to scent.

I'm still not sure I'd do it year-round, though. You mentioned the point that pinkie parts are probably more nutrient-dense than worms and slugs, but that might not necessarily be a good thing. Storeria have evolved digestive systems that deal with the goo they usually slurp up, and I could imagine that mammal parts might be too rich for them. An experiment is the way to tell, and I'm curious to see what happens when you take a few of the neonates and adults and raise them on pinky parts rather than slugs and worms.

Again, well done, and I hope to copy you in the future.
