More Slug Eggs (?)

My guess is that these are slug eggs. The slime which looks like it came from a slug nearby makes this seem like a plausible guess. However, in the book I read on slugs, they are said to only lay 50 eggs or so and I also would think they would not be so long. Rather, I would think that they would tend to be more spherical like what was shown in the previous photograph which was taken less than a foot away. (Update: June 2006 -- This is a slime mold, not slug eggs)

Location: Sealion Cove Trail, Kruzof Island, Southeast Alaska
