Spot the Frippet: something limicolous.

Here's a word to make you feel glamorous: limicolous.

Even if you're a slug then it will make you feel more glamorous:

Spot the Frippet: something limicolous. Something limicolous is something that lives in mud or muddy regions. It comes from the Latin words līmus, mud, and colere, to inhabit.
