    This is one of the most beautiful creatures of the ocean! But do beware, it IS slightly poisonous! Introducing the Glaucus Atlanticus, or better known as the Blue Sea Slug! Our very own Pokemon!

    Glaucus Atlanticus: Also known as “blue dragon”, this inch long sea slug is commonly found off the East and South Coast of South Africa, and Australia. Like many other colorful animals, its bright blue color is a warning for its powerful sting.

Blue Dragon Nudibranch (Glaucus atlanticus) - This fantasy like creature is actually a kind of sea slug.

Another nudibranch... I find myself endlessly fascinated with the incredible variety and stunning colors in these tiny obscure creatures.

I painted this pelagic nudibranch on a ceramic dish many years ago. It still looks pretty nice :)

Nudibranch-Sea slugs-There are more than 3,000 known species of nudibranch, and new ones are being identified almost daily. They are found throughout the world's oceans, but are most abundant in shallow, tropical waters. Their scientific name, Nudibranchia, means naked gills, and describes the feathery gills and horns that most wear on their backs.

"Sea dragon..."................obviously it's photoshopped...it's digital art.. but as it seems it finds it's way into places where there are almost no illustrations, only real life ocean & freshwater animals... I wonder what that's all about, just couldn't find a better album for it, or being fooled, maybe just as a joke, i don't know :P
