Blue Dragon - these sea slugs drift on the ocean surface, carried by winds and currents ๐ŸŒŠ They eat bluebottles, other pelagic creatures, and sometimes each other! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ They also drift upside down! The blue patterned side is the "foot" ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

Criterion D, my favourite, looks at VERY small population sizes (e.g. <1,000 mature individuals for VU) OR very restricted species with a serious plausible threat. E.g. spp of Beddomeia have tiny ranges & are very sensitive to pollution, climate change

Found this groovy lil leopard slug chillin outside last night. They didn't choose the slug life, but the slug life certainly chose them.

Snails & slugs may not be our favourite creatures, but these 2 images I captured show that they can be fantastic subjects to photograph.

Something different for dinner. Pacific oysters with a glass of prosecco. Touch of lemon and tabasco. Loved the special knife included in the package, and the carving bit was fun.

Because of its color I really wanted this to be a species of Cyanoplax, but alas it turns out to be Lepidozona radians. This is the first chiton I've ever seen with this lovely color. Neato!

It was very cool to see the worldโ€™s largest pearl oyster, Pinctada maxima, which occurs in large beds off the Kimberley coast. Itโ€™s been harvested for 10s of thousands of years by indigenous Australians who use it for food, cultural purposes, & trade.

These bank holidays are great and all but it does interfere with the supply of fresh fish. We should be back to normal now, until the next one.

w/ the strange group: Scaphopoda, commonly called 'tusk '. These live partially in the sediment and have a foot coming out of the larger opening that is used to into the sediment. Have you ever found a scaphopod?

Who knew what a 20x hand lens and a phone could do? Lauria cylindracea is a tiny snail but it is not as small the the pinhead spot snail (Paralaoma servilis) crawling on it.
