Mudslugs are large, fat worm-like creatures. They vary in size, spanning from the size of a regular worm to the size of a two story building. Their backs is brown and their underbellies are tan. Mudslugs are carnivorous, and have a mouth on their underbellies, filled with spiraling layers of teeth. There are two tentacles protruding from their face, which they use to grip their prey. from Mudslugs have no eyes, and depend on their acute sense of smell to locate food. Once a scent is aquired, the mudslugs will relentlessly pursue their prey.
Mudslugs are pack hunters by nature. The juvenile slugs are sent out by the mother to locate the prey above ground. Once the target is located, the juveniles burrow again, some following the prey unseen, some alerting the mother about the food. Because mudslugs can adhere to most surfaces, it is extremely difficult to avoid them. They even managed to attack W.I.T.C.H. in the air by using each others bodies to make a pillar. Lastly, the mother slug appears and devours the food before seeking another target. Caleb commented that he'd never seen a Mother fully out of the ground before. Mother Mudslugs are very resistant to fire as Tarnee shot are powerfull fireball at the mother and she knocked it away like a toothpick. Baby Slugs were also shown to be able to cleverly avoid blasts of air when the guardians first encountered them.
Appearance in W.I.T.C.H.
W.I.T.C.H. were attacked by a pack of mudslugs shortly after Cornelia quit the group. Without Cornelia's power over earth, The Guardians were helpless against the attack. Eventually, Will manages to convince Cornelia to return, just in time to fight the mother mudslug. Cornelia uses her power over earth to pick the beast up and hurl it through an open portal to Meridian.
