Have you ever seen a real live Digimon? Well, the blue dragon sea slug is probably as close as you are going to get to seeing one. This incredible little critter is bright blue and silver in coloration with various appendages branching out from its body.

The blue sea slug spends its time floating upside down on the surface of the oceans, traveling by the currents and winds. They are often found washed ashore in various parts of Africa (i.e. South Africa, Mozambique), Australia and Europe.

Something else that’s amazing about this animal is that it preys on larger, venoumous species such as the Portuguese Man O’ War!

New species are found every. single. day. If this creature exists here today, imagine what else is out there! Help conserve these critters and share these great wildlife discoveries with family and friends. Everyone deserves to learn about the beauty Mother Earth holds.
