The monster slugs, from Spain, that can grow up to five inches long, have been found eating dead mice, dog mess and even each other.
The species have already caused havoc in Scandinavia where slugs feasting on road kill caused so much slime it became a road hazard.
The new species, Arion vulgaris, was first identified in East Anglia at the end of last year.
