Giant slug is a type of monster in ADOM. They are very slow beasts that have a quite powerful acid breath attack. They are highly vulnerable to fire-based attacks. Their corpses are notable for granting a full elemental immunity, rather than a resistance.

Giant slugs generally do not show up until around the middle of the game, though some are usually found in Keethrax's level in the Druid Dungeon. Low-level PCs in particular should watch out for their breath, though this does come in handy for clearing out hostile cats.

Monster memory[]

This over-sized slug is covered in a slimy substance it leaves behind as it travels. While not fast travellers, they efficiently predigest their food by spitting a strong acid onto food before ingesting it.
