Sea slugs?

Ever wonder about the mysterious slugs of the ocean? Me too that’s why were talking about the top 5 coolest sea slugs around the planet. These animals are responsible for cleaning out oceans floors and eating the little things that other organisms don’t want. These slugs grow in many different forms and colors.

  1. Blue angel (Glaucus Atlanticus)

  they float upside down by using the surface tension of the water to stay up, where they are carried along by the winds and ocean currents.

2. Phyllodesmium Poindimiei

 The color of this slug is based on the deep pink in their digestive track. they eat a type of invasive coral in the australian oceans.

3.  Cadlinella Ornatissima

4. Leaf slug (Elysia Chlorotica)

 This slug doesn’t just look like a leaf, they also make their own food through photosynthesis!

5. Lettuce sea slug (Elysia Crispata)

 This slug is a type of slug that sucks sap out of algae that it eats, he gets his name from his looks of a little piece of salad.
