I tried all summer long to kill this mean plant, and no luck. Let’s see if winter can take care of him once and for all. Don’t let his pretty little flower deceive you! He’s mean!!! #thorns#weirdplants#poisonous

This is not science fiction but in fact a small predatory sea slug 🐌
Beside its colourful hues that provide two types of camouflage - It’s silvery bottom half, hides the slug from fish looking up from below and its blue topside offers protection from hungry birds!
The sea slug uses it's sting as the next line of defense. Also when they’ve fed on their favorite food, blue bottles or other poisonous jellyfishes like Portuguese man o' war, instead of digesting the sting cells, they store them on the outside of their body which makes their skin even more poisonous than their preys.
So think twice if you wanted to touch them next time.
All blue dragons are hermaphrodites, meaning they have both male and female reproductive organs. they lay eggs freely in the ocean or on the remains of their prey's body.
