Name that snail in another post fore this post can you name this slug for me. What the heck are they doing?

The slug looks happy, maybe they are courting? I mean it does not look like the snail is eating the slug. It looks like they are both saying hello. I know that the slugs bits are under the mantle and not in the tail, but still I suspect the slug is responding as if this is a courtship.
