Have you met the nudists of the ocean? . You may have heard of nudibranchs before, a group of soft-bodied mollusks with a lifestyle just as quirky as their name suggests. These sea slugs live their entire lives completely exposed, with no shell and “naked gills.” Learn all about nudibranchs on today’s blog at Oceana.ca/Blog . . . 📷 Credit: Sylke Rohrlach

56/100 the blue glaucus. A blue sea slug, also known as the blue sea dragon or blue dragon. It’s striking colouring is for camouflage the blue side faces upwards to hide against the blue of the sea, and the silver side faces down to camouflage against bright surface of the water. Thanks for your patience while I’ve taken a break from this project and from insta. My dad passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly a couple of weeks ago and myself and my family have been huddled very close together trying to understand and deal with this loss. My dad was a lovely, gentle man who was born and raised in Galicia and was intensely proud of his heritage. His love and curiosity of the sea, not to mention passion for good seafood, was passed on to myself and my brother. He was greatly tickled by my sea related artwork and always had a fact to share or question to ask. He was also a small business owner himself before he retired, and although his fatherly concern sometimes overcame him, I think he was proud of my exploits in his own way. As a tribute to my dad, I want to continue and finish this project, which has since become even more important to me. I can’t promise a post every day, but I will do my best. Thank you for all your lovely messages of concern x #the100dayproject #100daysofthingsthatliveinthesea #seaslugfriday

The #blueglaucus , a poisonous sea slug, and quite beautiful! I think the coolest part about it, is how they eat Man o' wars (jellyfish-like bundles of microorganisms) and select the most venomous cells for their own use! Clearly a 10/10! A perfect mix of beauty and lethality (Suggested by dailylamp1 )

Mermay day 8, theme: witch. I give you a blue glaucus mermaid. A poisonous sea slug that looks super cool and I had to turn it into a mermaid. It was perfect for a witchy feel. #mermay #mermay2018 #mermaids #mermaid #blueseaslug #blueglaucus #witch

Four of my favourite creatures on the planet. There are loads more but visually these have me floored that nature can do this. First is the Orchid Mantis. These guys look so much like a petal from an orchid that occasionally I still get utterly astonished when they begin to move. It’s literally is someone made a little robot and glued a flower to it. Next is the “Blue Glaucus” sea slug. These wouldn’t look out of place in a Sci-Fi film. I couldn’t believe it when I found out they were real and not some sort of CGI or digital art. Third is the wonderfully named Rosy Maple Moth. Even the name sounds cute and sweet which is perfect given they look like someone made candy into a plush toy. I like to imagine they smell of strawberries and custard. And last is probably making you think “really? A pigeon?” But actually look at it. We are so desensitised to them given we see them every day and are informed of the diseases they carry like rats with wings but imagine a world where they are rare. Where we don’t see them every day and they don’t carry disease. The natural oil like rainbows each of them has is astoundingly beautiful and blows me away. Nature is amazing. #orchidmantis #rosymaplemoth #blueglaucus #pigeon #nature #colourful #damnnatureyoupretty #marinebiology #entomology #ornithology
