I've been noticing that the new pads on this Opuntia have some damaged spots. I caught this unwelcome critter yesterday. Is it responsible for the spots, or just an incidental opportunist? TIA!

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

TY, Philip, I was hoping that was the case. What a dumb individual slug. There are plenty of softer leaves in my yard.

As some people just love to eat catus, that slug does too.
He's been really chowing down 😀.
Personally, Catus tastes, BLAH ! To me.
Ttfn 💃
And thanks, for all the thumbs you throw my way. 👍👍
