Slugs – nudibranch – are snails without a shell. More accurately, they are creatures that have a small and atrophied internal shell. The body of the slug is soft and contains a lot of water.
The sea slugs have developed a variety of wonderful and diverse shapes that serve them for warnings, camouflage and courtship.
The slugs store venom in their bodies which they use for self-protection.
Their bright colors are intended to serve as a warning sign for predators. There are about 3,000 types of slugs. The largest – the ‘Spanish Dancer’ – can grow up to 45 cm. It is possible to see the Spanish Dancer and other types of slugs on display in the Rare Fish Aquarium (No. 9 on the map).
