Today’s Blue dragon sea slug 💙 #blueglaucus #blueangel

29 2 May 6, 2018

The blue dragon with a deadly sting . . Sea slugs are marine invertebrates with varying levels of resemblance to terrestrial slugs. The sea slugs are actually snails that over evolutionary time have seemingly lost their shells, due to having a greatly reduced or internal shell. They are noted for their often-extraordinary colors and striking forms. . . Glaucus atlanticus is the blue dragon or blue sea slug that floats with the aid of a gas-filled sac in its stomach. Due to the location of the gas sac, this species floats upside down with the blue side of their body facing upwards to blend in with the blue of the water. The silver/grey side of the sea slugs faces downwards, blending in with the silvery surface of the sea. This unique camouflage protects it from predators from both above and below the surface of water. . . It feeds on dangerously venomous creatures including the notoriously poisonous “Portuguese man o'war” (Physalia physalis) which has toxin-containing structures called nematocysts. The slug is immune to these nematocysts, and appears to select and store the most venomous nematocysts for its own use in the specialized sacs at the tip of its thin feather-like "fingers". This concentrates the venom resulting in a sting that is more powerful and deadly than the prey’s sting on which it feeds. . .

I had to create a stamp design for an art assignment. I know that sounds like one boring assignment, but I decided to make it a little more interesting. 👌🏻 #art #artistsoninstagram #painting #calligraphy #ink #watercolor #blueglaucus #glaucusatlanticus #artassignment

YO YO YO, GUESS WHO HAS A NEW SONIC SONA? I DO! Meet BLUE the GLAUCUS ATLANTICUS!!!! She's such a good poisonous slug. Cherish her. . . . Info: Blue, being the lovely slug Mobian she is, can live on land and in water. She loves everything weird, and wishes her name was more unique to fit her interests, but hey, take what you can get. She loves being a nerd, and she loves to squeals about cartoons and comics. Fun fact! Her "wings" actually can't make her fly she uses them to sWIM SWIFTLY, or to look cool. Either one's great. . . . #sonic #sonicthehedgehog #sonicoc #sonicocs #oc #originalcharacter #persona #blueglaucus #glaucusatlanticus #flyingpings #simchathepiefaceocs
