How I got into sea slugs
Hello! Hello! Hello! Welcome to the geekout! This is a blog post on where we talk about something we’re passionate about, and obviously I chose the sea slug. I mean just look at their faces:
I was actually researching about the Great Barrier Reef for a project about climate change when I stumbled on a picture of a sea slug.
I thought that it was just some stupid worm and payed no attention. But then I remembered that I needed rare animals for the project so I searched up: “sea slugs in the Great Barrier Reef.”
I was enchanted by all their colours and shapes. I spent the entire research proportion scrolling through photos of sea slugs.
Ever since then I’ve loved sea slugs. tHeY aRe BeTtEr ThEn HuMaNs. Heheh forget that second part.
I remember showing my friends and they didn’t seem to have the same enthusiasm as me.
For awhile I didn’t really have much interest in them but a couple weeks ago I stumbled across an article about how some sea slugs could regrow their heads
(Here’s a link if you want to read it:link)
Also if you’re looking for random facts I’ll write a couple that I didn’t put in the about me page.
- Sea slugs have green blood
- Some sea slugs can swim
- Some sea slugs have bioluminescence
Thank you for reading!
Hello! Welcome to another blog post! Here I’ll be geeking out about sea slugs. I know what a surprise.
Here I’ll tell you the need to know things about sea slugs, like a list of the best sea slugs or just some random facts!
Wow there a lot of sea slugs but after hours of consideration these are the top ten:
10. Janolus Fuscus
The Janolus Fuscus can be found from Alaska to California. It has large colourful lobes on its back called cerata that help with respiration. This nudibranch is relatively small reaching only about one inch (2.5 cm) in length.
9. The frosted Nudibranch
The frosted Nudibranch is a stunning sea slug that is most commonly identified by its frosty white tips of its cerata on its back. There are multiple different colours that these sea slugs come in, including peach and mauve.
8. Cyerce nigricans
The Cyerce Nigrigans is one of the most iconic sea slugs. From being used on poster to being used for art. This pinecone like sea slugs is definitely one of the most beautiful.
7. The blue sea dragon
The blue sea dragon is one of the most dangerous animals…sometimes. So you may be thinking:
What? How can it be only dangerous…sometimes???? The interesting thing about these sea slugs is that they eat poisonous jellyfish and instead of killing them they absorb the poison and use it for their own defence.
Lettuce sea slug
The lettuce sea slug is in the subfamily of sea slugs called Sacoglossa. Which consists of sea slugs that can use photosynthesis. Often called the solar powered sea slugs. The lettuce sea slug has little ruffles.
5. Nembrotha kubaryana
This sea slug is quite cute but sadly I co seem to find much about this cute sea slug but as far as I know it’s quite big.
- Dirona Albolineata
The amazing Dirona Albolineata is normally light purple or orange or white or clear with bright white tipped cerata. It lives from Alaska to California and it’s sometimes found in Japan and Russia.
3. Cadlinella ornatissima
Cadlinella Ornatissima is one of them cutest sea slugs in the sea. It looks like it literally crawled out of a cartoon. It’s typically yellow with pink tubercles.
2. The sea bunny
The sea bunny is arguably the cutest sea slug. I-I have no words that can describe its cuteness it’s just so cute. It’s normally white of orange with black spots.
1. The leaf sheep
Oh my god! The leaf sheep are by far my favourite sea slug. They’re cute, interesting and cool. They are actually a Sacoglossan and use photosynthesis. They have a sheep like face and bright green certera.
Thank you so much for reading!!!!!
Hello welcome to the reflection part of the project…fun. So I need to reflect and that’s fun.
I think that I did a decent job on keeping on track and keeping it organized. I think that each post reflected the idea properly and send a clear message of what it was.
For the first part I think that I did a good job talking about how I found out about sea slugs and explaining the story. I think that i probably could have written more and adding more detail.
For the second part I think I did a good job on making a proper list and that it shows that I have made it clear that I did my research about each sea slug. I think that I could have added more detail to each sea slug’s description.
Bye and thank you for reading!
