Slugs of the Seas

Alrighty. Time to talk about my passion: sea slugs.

FIRST OFF: What the fuck is a sea slug? Well, according to Wikipedia, the sea slug label applies to “some marine invertebrates with varying levels of resemblance to terrestrial slugs”. That’s a fancy way of saying it’s a slug that lives in the sea. For the sake of this, you just need to know that sea slugs are gastropods in the mollusk phylum (taxonomical term for a group smaller than a kingdom and larger than a class).

These lovely creatures can be divided into three groups, also known as clades/orders:

  • Nudibranchs: the vibrant and poisonous ones (an example being the internet-famous sea bunny)
  • Sacoglossans: the ones that look like plants and behave like plants (most of the time)
  • Sea hares: the dull (boring) ones that sometimes look like a taco

Now, because I adore sea slugs (some more than others), I’m going to make this a series! I’m definitely going to cover the different clades of sea slugs as well as their anatomy, and I might dedicate a few posts to specific species of sea slugs. Also, if this interests you, I’d suggest looking through the Sea Slug Forum; it’s a website with a bunch of posts about sea slugs, and it was made by a malacologist (someone who studies mollusks)!


New Spouses (Among Other Things)

Apparently not updating this blog leads to me getting more spouses as I now have three. ANYWAYS, not really sure what to do here seeing as this bitch (me, in case that wasn’t obvious) has an actual friend group now. Wow, it finally happened, I’m forming connections? Yes, yes it did in fact happen.

Another thing! My writing has become even more unreadable due to Engl*sh class. I either write like it’s an essay worth half my grade or like someone’s cat jumped on my keyboard and I’m desperately trying to justify the gibberish it spammed.

YET ANOTHER THING!!!!! I love sea slugs SO MUCH. They are amazing and I may just write about em, if I can be bothered.

I, uh, have another thing to share. Due to the whole “friend group” thing, I enjoy hanging out with my acquaintances more than typing out stuff on this blog. I may still update but eh, I’m having fun regardless. My ideas for what to post are currently: discord stuff, minecraft screenshots, and sea slug facts.

That concludes this update; have fun, eat healthy, yada yada.
