Nudibranchs! Casually referred to as sea slugs (similar to the sea hares in my story today) they are soft-bodied marine gastropods that come in a variety of striking colors. In all honesty, I’m a bit creeped out by slugs and other slimy creatures. I grew up with a fear of snails of all things! Although I’ve gotten a bit stronger to that fear I still get the shivers when I encounter them sometimes. 😳🤣 I even got a bit shaky peering into the tidepools this morning and seeing a bunch of sea hares inching about! For me these colorful little creatures are best admired from a distance or in paint form 💙🎨

Lesson 4: Glaucus Atlanticus (The Blue Dragon) *** *** This sneaky little fella stores the poison from other creatures which he eats within its on tissue and uses it as his own defence mechanism submitting a painful and potentially dangerous sting (im going to say it... CRIKEY!). Glaucus Atlanticus aka the Blue Dragon, The Sea Swallow, The Blue Angel, The Blue Glaucus, The Blue Sea Slug and The Blue Ocean Slug, is a species of small blue sea slug. These sea slugs are pelagic, they float upside down using the waters surface tension to stay on the surface where they are carried along by the ocean currents and by the wind. The blue side of their body faces upwards, blending in with the blue of the water if viewed from above and the silver/grey side of the sea slugs faces downwards, blending in with the silvery surface of the sea if viewed from below offering Glaucus Atlanticus some handy camoflauge. Glaucus Atlanticus feeds on other pelagic creatures, including the venomous siphonophore and the Portuguese man o' war 😲😲😲 (yep... double crikey!). Sometimes Glaucus Atlanticus will accidentally wash up onto the shore, and therefore they may be found on beaches, but primarily they are only found in the open ocean usually in temperate and tropical waters throughout the world. It has been recorded from the east and south coasts of South Africa, European waters, the east coast of Australia, and Mozambique also in the Humboldt Current ecosystem in Peru and off Andhra Pradesh in India aswell as the Bay of Bengal and off the coast of Tamil Nadu, India. Glaucus atlanticus was also recently found off Bermuda in January 2016. *** *** 📸: photo courtesy of weronikas_ thankyou! 👏😁 *** *** #pembaisland #glaucusatlanticus #bluedragon #bluedragons #seaswallow #blueangel #blueangels #blueglaucus #blueseaslug #bluesea #seaslug #seaslugs #blueocean #blueoceans #blueoceanslug #crikey #pelagic #camoflauge #poisonous #sting #bepartofsomethinggreat #bepartofsomething #beapartofit #partofsomethinggreat #somethinggreat #dosomething #seesomething #learnsomething #besomething #slug
