Had to see the 'Blue Dragon' in motion. Slow, but then again it is a slug

Not a week goes by on ATS when i don't seen an amazingly beautiful picture of creatures from all over the world, now i know there was a thread a while back on sea slugs but it looks like that was a different kind. This one has a coolness to it that is on a whole other level!








This tiny creature has gotten a fair bit of attention lately because of one simple reason: It’s absolutely crazy-looking. At first glance, it resembles a Pokémon or character from Final Fantasy more closely than a real biological animal. But the Glaucus atlanticus sea slug—commonly known as the blue sea slug or blue dragon—is indeed a genuine species. And if you swim in the right places off of South Africa, Mozambique or Australia, you just might find one floating upside down, riding the surface tension of the water’s surface.

You'd almost think that little fella was a piece of jewellery or something handcrafted.


What is fascinating about this is that it has the ability to suck out the toxins from much larger species without harm to itself, then is able to use that against others.

Beautiful though.


CX.


That slug is breathtaking, it truly is. I love that we continue to find interesting and strange things.

Definitely seeing some sacred geometry and that mathematical equation thing in its markings.

What is that math thing called? It can also be seen in other nature like a seashell.


Fibonachi sequence you mean


its a universal mathematical number
and that sequence can be seen in sea shells, the milky way itself or in our DNA

Its like the perfect formula from the Creator
that made life possible

It almost looks like a tiny dragon (at least what I think a tiny dragon might look like) sitting right in the palm of that guy's hand!!


I thought of the same thing, I said I wanted a fish tank full of these little sea dragons!

I can hear Bugs Bunny now, saying "I want to love it, and hug it, and name it George!"


I hope nobody decides to make shoes out of it....

S&F! Thanks for sharing it!

They'd be very colorful shoes, though...

Please don't make every thread an argument over whether god created things or not....

Seriously, every single time i see you post something you mention god and then you turn a thread that had nothing to do with religion into an argument about religion. It's very annoying.

ok i wanna ask my fellow humans a question. can we stop creating ways of killing each other , and killing our planet, and focus on saving our earth and ourselves ?

just think of all the amazing life we will never discover because it will b part of this current mass extinction.

sigh!

It's gorgeous! I love how it resembles a miniature dragon or even a pokemon is awesome. It's amazing what we find in our oceans, now if only everyone would stop polluting it... Thanks for sharing!

The sea (and freshwater) is a wonderful place, and there are probably thousands of yet undiscovered species of kritters. Even the 'ugly' ones seem beautiful (to me) in their own way. Thanks, OP for showing us yet another life we didn't know about.

I really want to thank you for this magnificent little splendour that made my day in every way. Life is truly amazing and this is just a reminder of what we can miss when we are focused on the crap all around us.

But then there is this as one example of countless. Really just takes me back to the centre of everything.

"Well, we were out diving at night in the Caribbean..."

That's a setup for a B-movie!

Life is so dynamic, so complex, & so unique that is baffles me to think that no two of any mulch-celled living organisms are exactly identical.

The diversity of life on earth is quite simply mind-blowing.

That is really beautiful. I'll be willing to bet you didn't find it in the Gulf of Mexico after the nice folks at BP and Halburton turned it into the gulf of death...friggin douche bags.
