“Blue Dragon” Sea Slug Reminds Us That the Ocean is Filled With Strange Creatures

The Glaucus Atlanticus is my favorite animal, but it cannot be kept in captivity because it eats Portuguese men 'o war, and thos are much larger and harder to keep.

°★ ☽ FORGET ME NOT ☾ ★ ° inspiration - 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.
