Glaucus atlanticus (common names include the sea swallow, blue angel, blue glaucus, blue dragon, blue sea slug and blue ocean slug) is a species of small, bluesea slug, a pelagic aeolid nudibranch, a shell-less gastropod mollusk.
The chromodoris willani is a sea slug that, much like that Glaucus Atlanticus we saw a while back, looks like a creature from the world of Pokemon.This sea slug lives in the Western Pacific Ocean, in the areas from Indonesia to the Philippines, and ranges in color. The chromodoris willani shown in this picture is in the middle of the color spectrum: the creatures can range from a dark blue color to a near transparent white.
Glaucus Atlanticus: I just discovered these last night. And like jellyfish i am pretty sure these are aliens. They do really exist in the ocean,& prey on Man-O-Wars! They can store the poisons of the things they eat to create a sting that is more potent than any of their victims. Yet they are on average only 3 cm long. And they have serrated toofies =s But nonetheless I am entirely intrigued by these SciFi looking things
Glaucus atlanticus (blue sea slug). "These little guys are pretty awesome. They live in temperate and tropical waters, staying afloat by swallowing air and keeping it in their stomachs. They eat the venomous Portuguese Man o’ War jellyfish and keep its stings for their own defense. And they look like cycloptic alien dragons. What’s not to love?" "This is a sea slug? But it’s so pretty! alien I swear alien"
