Slugs on lawn- dangers?

Hi all,
I have noticed what looks like slugs on my lawn today (see pic) and I'm wondering:
1. Are they slugs? 2. Are they dangerous to my toddler who plays on the lawn? 3. Are they dangerous for my lawn? 4. If I do need to get rid of them, how?
Any help appreciated!

It is a slug. Should not be dangerous to toddler or lawn but they will eat plants and flowers. Besides suggested slug bait you can leave out boards or something for them to crawl under and remove them. Salt on their bodies kills them. If you put out something like a pie dish full of beer, they will crawl in it and drown.
