Is The Blue Dragon Real... Glaucus atlanticus
 
07:47
Glaucus atlanticus (common names include the sea swallow, blue angel, blue glaucus, blue dragon, blue sea slug and blue ocean slug) is a species of small, blue sea slug, a pelagic aeolid nudibranch, a shell-less gastropod mollusk in the family Glaucidae. These sea slugs are pelagic: they float upside down by using the surface tension of the water to stay up, where they are carried along by the winds and ocean currents. Glaucus atlanticus is camouflaged: the blue side of their body faces upwards, blending in with the blue of the water. The silver/grey side of the sea slugs faces downwards, blending in with the silvery surface of the sea. Glaucus atlanticus feeds on other pelagic creatures, including the venomous siphonophore, the Portuguese man o' war. This sea slug stores stinging nematocysts from the cnidarian within its own tissues as defense against predation. Humans handling the slug may receive a very painful and potentially dangerous sting. Taxonomy This species looks similar to, and is closely related to, Glaucus marginatus, which is now understood to be not one species, but a cryptic species complex of four separate species that live in the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean. Description At maturity Glaucus atlanticus can be up to 3 centimetres (1.2 in) in length. It is silvery grey on its dorsal side and dark and pale blue ventrally. It has dark blue stripes on its head. It has a flat, tapering body and six appendages that branch out into rayed, finger-like cerata. The radula of this species bears serrated teeth. Buoyancy and coloration With the aid of a gas-filled sac in its stomach, G. atlanticus floats at the surface. Due to the location of the gas sac, this species floats upside down. The upper surface is actually the foot (the underside in other slugs and snail), and this has either a blue or blue-white coloration. The true dorsal surface (carried downwards in G. atlanticus) is completely silver-grey. This coloration is an example of countershading, which helps protect it from predators that might attack from below and from above. The blue coloration is also thought to reflect harmful UV sunlight. Distribution and habitat This nudibranch is pelagic, and there is some evidence that it occurs throughout the world's oceans, in temperate and tropical waters. It has been recorded from the east and south coasts of South Africa, European waters, the east coast of Australia, and Mozambique. Glaucus atlanticus was recently found in the Humboldt Current ecosystem in Peru in 2013, and off Andhra Pradesh in India in 2012. This is in line with the known habitat characteristics of the species: they live in warm temperate climates in the Southern Pacific, and in circumtropical and Lusitanian environments. Before finding Glaucus atlanticus off Andhra Pradesh, these nudibranchs were documented as having been seen in the Bay of Bengal and off the coast of Tamil Nadu, India, over 677 kilometers apart. Glaucus atlanticus was also recently found off Bermuda in January 2016. Although these sea slugs live on the open ocean, they sometimes accidentally wash up onto the shore, and therefore they may be found on beaches. Life history and behavior G. atlanticus preys on other larger pelagic organisms. The sea slugs can move toward prey or mates by using their cerata to make slow swimming movements. They are known to prey on the dangerously venomous Portuguese man o' war (Physalia physalis); the by-the-wind-sailor (Velella velella); the blue button (Porpita porpita); and the violet snail, Janthina janthina. Occasionally, individuals attack and eat other individuals in captivity. G. atlanticus is able to feed on the Portuguese man o' war due to its immunity to the venomous nematocysts. The slug consumes the entire organism and appears to select and store the most venomous nematocysts for its own use. The nematocysts are collected in specialized sacs (cnidosacs) at the tip of the animal's cerata, the thin feather-like "fingers" on its body. Because Glaucus concentrates the venom, it can produce a more powerful and deadly sting than the Man o' War on which it feeds. Like almost all heterobranchs, Glaucus is a hermaphrodite, having both male and female reproductive organs. Unlike most nudibranchs, which mate with their right sides facing, sea swallows mate with ventral sides facing. After mating, both animals produce egg strings. Sting The Glaucus atlanticus is able to swallow the venomous nematocysts from siphonophores such as the Portuguese man o' war, and store them in the extremities of its finger-like cerata. Picking up the animal can result in a painful sting, with symptoms similar to those caused by the Portuguese man o' war.

Deadly Sea Creature - Blue Angel
 
01:44
This strange sea creature is the Glaucus Atlanticus also known as the blue angel, blue dragon and blue sea slug is a marine gastropod mollusk. This tiny animal species is quite the predator. You will find this colorful family member of sea slugs in temperate and tropical waters. Regions include the East and South coast of South Africa, European waters, off the East coast of Australia and Mozambique. Quite tiny, the species normal size is up to 3cm, but it does feed on larger prey like the venomous Portuguese man of war consuming the organism in its entirety. The blue angel is immune to the man of wars venom, collecting it for its own use, using a much more concentrated venom, its sting is more powerful and deadly than the man o war. The poison is stored inside the finger like structures sticking out of its body known as cerata, this is just one of its defense mechanisms. The beautiful blue underside of the blue angel acts as a camouflage from air born predators as it floats upside down on the surface of the water. Its back is grayish in color and faces downward, camouflaging it from predators looking up from below the water. The Blue angel is a hermaphrodite allowing both slugs to produce egg strings after mating which they lay on driftwood, or the skeletons of their victims. There is so much more to learn about this intriguing creature, but we do know that While they are beautiful to behold, they are dangerous to actually hold.

Blue Dragon Sea Slug eating a Portuguese Man O' War
 
01:11
Amazing to watch! I picked these blue dragons up from the sand where they were washed up and dying. I put them into a bowl of sea-water and most of them survived! So I researched them (knowing nothing) and found they eat Portuguese man o' war ('blue-bottles' in Australia). So I went back to the beach and collected a few blue-bottles, put them in the tank and was amazed to watch the sea-slugs stalk, attack and devour them. It was amazing to see in real-life in my kitchen. I plan to release these guys back into the ocean now they are well... PS -sorry for the portrait orientation. I didn't plan to upload this but it was too good not to share ...

Sea slug, scientifically known as nudibranch, literally translates to “naked gill”. To put it simply they are sea snails without a shell. By losing their only defense mechanism, they have been forced to evolve and develop other defense systems. Some can blend in with their surroundings, others can get a bit more dangerous and use their toxic glands or stinging cells.

Mucky Secrets - Part 19 - Sea Slugs Feeding & Mating - Lembeh Strait
 
04:51
Sea slugs feeding and mating. Part 19 of my documentary, "Mucky Secrets", about the fascinating marine creatures of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia. Watch the full 90-minute documentary at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJMZ6reOB0E In this video we study how sea slugs (including nudibranchs) feed and mate. All known nudibranchs are carnivores. The biggest family of nudibranchs, the chromodoridids, feed exclusively on sponges. Most sea slugs have a ribbon-like tongue covered in microscopic teeth called a radula to help them consume their prey. The form of the radula varies greatly and is important as a basis for taxonomic classification. We see a pleurobranch, Pleurobranchus forskalii, a different type of sea slug, feeding on an ascidian, or "sea squirt", a type of tunicate. Nembrotha nudibranchs also feed on ascidians. We see a Nembrotha lineolata feeding on a blue club tunicate. The ascidian feeds by filtering plankton from the water with its delicate, blue, sieve-like interior enclosed in a clear outer sac, its tunic. The sea slug everts its proboscis, its oral tube, out of its mouth and, with ruthless efficiency, sucks this fleshy interior right through the tunic. The radula teeth enable the slug to deal with the tougher parts of the sea squirt's intestines. Most sea slugs are quite specific in their choice of food, and so they are often drawn towards the same place. This increases the chances of encountering others of the same species and finding a mate. As they have no vision, nudibranchs locate each other initially through smell then touch. During copulation, they line up their genitals which are on the right side of their body. All sea slugs are hermaphrodites and contain both male and female reproductive systems. During mating, each nudibranch receives sperm from the other. We see a pair of Nembrotha chamberlaini nudibranchs mating. The penis, which is off to the side, is covered in tiny, sharp barbs which lock it into the vagina, which is at the centre of the stalk. The male organs often mature before the female ones. Small nudibranchs with an immature female reproductive system can store the sperm they receive until they start producing fertile eggs. We also encounter a mating pair of Hypselodoris bullocki nudibranchs. Their genitals are also covered in tiny spines that anchor them together during copulation. After fertilisation, a mucus-bound ribbon of eggs is laid in a spiral, often on or near the species' food source. Most egg masses are toxic to predators and are abandoned by the parent. Hypselodorid nudibranchs often follow each other around, top to tail. The reason for this 'trailing', or "tailgating" behaviour is a mystery. It's thought to be a prelude to mating, but in some cases the trailing slug might simply be getting an easy ride in the search for food. There are English captions showing either the full narration or the common and scientific names of the marine life, along with the dive site names.

Blue Sea Slug - Two Glaucus atlanticus and a Glaucus marginatus (or Glaucillus marginatus)
 
02:18
These small sea slugs float on the sea and are blown onto shore during the summer months onto Central Coast beaches. These were collected at MacMasters Beach in New South Wales. The Blue Sea Slug feeds almost exclusively on the tentacles of the stinging bluebottles. The larger ones are Glaucus atlanticus, with a single row of pinnae, while the smaller one has multiple rows of pinnae, hence is Glaucus marginatus. See more information on my website: http://dougbeckers.com/bluebottle-control. One of the best sites for further information is the Sea Slug Forum run by Bill Rudman it is excellent http://www.seaslugforum.net/factsheet/glauatla The British Museum of Natural History has also good information about Glaucus atlanticus http://www.nhm.ac.uk/nature-online/species-of-the-day/collections/our-collections/glaucus-atlanticus/index.html

Watch out for blue dragon has a sting like hot knives on skin
 
05:37
Glaucus atlanticus (common names include the sea swallow, blue angel, blue glaucus, blue dragon, blue sea slug and blue ocean slug) is a species of small, blue sea slug, a pelagic aeolid nudibranch, a shell-less gastropod mollusk in the family Glaucidae. These sea slugs are pelagic: they float upside down by using the surface tension of the water to stay up, where they are carried along by the winds and ocean currents. Glaucus atlanticus is camouflaged: the blue side of their body faces upwards, blending in with the blue of the water. The silver/grey side of the sea slugs faces downwards, blending in with the silvery surface of the sea. Glaucus atlanticus feeds on other pelagic creatures, including the venomous siphonophore, the Portuguese man o' war. This sea slug stores stinging nematocysts from the cnidarian within its own tissues as defense against predation. Humans handling the slug may receive a very painful and potentially dangerous sting. That namesake coloration is for more than just show. The sea slug uses the coloration to its advantage as it floats on the ocean's surface. The blue side of their body faces upward to camouflage it against the blue of the sea, while the silver side faces downward to camouflage it against the bright surface of the water. Predators looking down at it or up at it will have a harder time seeing the little slug thanks to those beautiful dashes of color. This species of sea slug is not defenseless as it floats. If the pretty colors don't hide it well enough from potential predators, the sea slug's sting is its next line of defense. The slug isn't venomous all on its own. Rather, it stores the stinging nematocysts created by the creatures on which it feeds, including venomous siphonophores and Portuguese man o' wars. These cells are stored and concentrated, so when it's touched, the blue dragon can release these stinging cells to pack an even more powerful punch than the man o' war hydrozoan. All blue dragons are hermaphrodites, meaning they have both male and female reproductive organs. When two blue dragons mate, they both produce egg strings. According to The Cephalopod Page, "Because of the lack of a hard substrate to attach the eggs to, the eggs often float freely in the water or are placed on the remains of prey until the larvae hatch." Glaucus Atlanticus are up to 3 cm long and weigh between 3-100 grams Their heads are blunt with tentacles near the mouth. The slugs are silvery grey on their bellies to help them blend in with the surface when observed from below. They are blue on their backs to help them blend in with the reflective surface of the ocean. Glaucus Atlanticus have 3-4 clusters of papillae, or round protrusions, off the sides of their bodies. Within all the clusters, there can be up to 84 individual papillae. Off the papillae, there are 'fingers', or cerata, and at the end of the cerata, there are sacks called cnidosacs which are used for their defense. Glaucus Atlanticus collect the venom from their prey's nematocysts, the barbed or venomous coils in jellyfish, and store this venom in their cnidosacs. The Glaucus Atlanticus are protected from their prey's venom by the hard disks inside their skin and a protective layer of mucus. Depending on the amount of venom stored inside the cnidosacs, the Glaucus Atlanticus can produce a more deadly sting than the Portuguese Man-O'-War, which has a sting described as feeling like hot knives on skin.

Blue Dragon Sea Slugs - Two Glaucus atlanticus
 
00:24
Bermuda Blue Dragons - Glaucus atlanticus Could have never guessed that a random and unplanned walk along Spittal Pond on Saturday would result in such a find. This is a Blue Dragon (Glaucus atlanticus), one of many, which I found among a countless cluster of baby portuguese man o' war. This creature eats them. What do you do when you find a blue dragon? CONTACT CHOY, message your friends and save as many as possible. These had washed into a tide pool and were drying and dying. We managed to save 8 and got them to the aquarium.

Beautiful And Deadly Creature Washed Up On A Beach - The Blue Dragon
 
02:22
The small sea monster that washed up on a beach in Queensland, Australia is even creepy than it appears. First of all it has a pretty name, it is referred to as The Blue Dragon, and its scientific name is Glaucus atlanticus. In other words it is, in fact, a type of slug. It still appears really awesome, though, the weird stripes on the skin of the slug are not for decoration. They camouflage the blue dragon in order that predators both above and below cannot eat him. The Blue Dragon floats on the surface of the ocean belly-up, displaying its deep blue abdomen that blends in with the blue of the sea. Its back is striped silver, meaning that it is hard for underwater predators to see them against the water surface. The way it appears though is not the weirdest thing about the Blue Dragon. The sea slug feeds on the venom in the stinging cells of the jellyfish. It’s favorite meal being the Portuguese Man o’ War’s, especially painful venom. The Dragon eats a little of the venom; however, the majority is centered in its own tentacles. This concentration causes it to be even more powerful and makes the Blue Dragon able to reduce a whole grown adult man to a sobbing child if you are unfortunate to come into contact with one. The disclosed effects of blue dragon poison are: burning, hives, and also dark, damaged skin patches of. So as awesome as they look I would not suggest touching one. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Eastminster by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100719 Artist: http://incompetech.com/

Mucky Secrets - Part 18 - Sea Slugs inc. Nudibranchs - Lembeh Strait
 
07:43
Sea slugs including nudibranchs. Part 18 of my documentary, "Mucky Secrets", about the fascinating marine creatures of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia. Watch the full 90-minute documentary at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJMZ6reOB0E A huge and fascinating diversity of sea slugs, or opisthobranchs (Opisthobranchia), are found in the Lembeh Strait. Opisthobranch means "gills behind", because their gills are located behind their heart. Most sea slugs have all but lost their protective shell, but compensate with more advanced weapons of defence. Over six thousand different species of sea slug are nudibranchs (Nudibranchia). The name means "naked gills", referring to the rosette of branchial plumes on their back, surrounding their anus. These gills vary greatly in form, but all have a large surface area for oxygen exchange. There are English captions showing either the full narration or the common and scientific names of the marine life, along with the dive site names. The full Mucky Secrets nature documentary features a huge diversity of weird and wonderful marine animals including frogfish, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, crabs, shrimps, moray eels, seahorses, octopus, cuttlefish etc..

Blue angel is a species of small, blue sea slug, a pelagic aeolid nudibranch, a shell-less gastropod mollusk in the family Glaucidae. These sea slugs are pelagic: they float upside down on the surface tension of the water, where they are carried along by the winds and ocean currents. Glaucus atlanticus is camouflaged: the blue side of their body faces upwards, blending in with the blue of the water. The silver/grey side of the sea slugs faces downwards, blending in with the silvery surface of the sea.

Weird Glowing Blue Sea Creature That Eats Jellyfish Washes Up on Australian Beach
 
01:04
A strange and seldom-seen sea creature has made a rare public appearance. This is the Blue Dragon - or glaucus atlanticus - which was caught on camera after washing up on Australia's Gold Coast. The bizarre-looking creature is in fact a sea slug, and feeds on blue bottle jellyfish - otherwise known as Portuguese Man O' War. While the jellyfish has a powerful sting that can severely injure humans, the Blue Dragon is unaffected by the venom. In fact, the Blue Dragon packs a fairly nasty sting of its own. Kylie Pitt, a marine life expert from Griffith University in Queensland, told the Gold Coast Bulletin: “They are really weird. “The glaucus eat blue bottles – they float upside down and move around using the water’s surface tension. “I have handled them before and wasn’t stung, but I would not recommend anyone pick them up because they can have a painful sting.” Click link to subscribe to Red Phoenix Channel : http://www.youtube.com/user/TheRedPhoenixOne?sub_confirmation=1 Click to view this channel for more videos : https://www.youtube.com/user/TheRedPhoenixOne

Beautiful And Rare 'Blue Dragon' Washes Ashore In Australia
 
00:19
Looks more like a Pokemon than a real animal, right? But the 'blue dragon" is quite real. It's actually named Glaucus atlanticus and is a small sea slug found in in tropical and temperate waters throughout the world. One recently washed ashore in Queensland, Australia, and the little critter has gone viral. As popular as this nudibranch is, no one ever mentions that this sea slug (like other sea slugs) is a total badass. Why, you ask? It eats incredibly venomous animals like the Portuguese Man o' War. The sting is agonizingly painful to a human and to most animals, but poses no problem to Glaucus atlanticus, which is immune. After the sea slug has consumed the Portuguese Man o' War it "selects" the most venomous cells for its own use. The slug then incorporates these cells into its own tissues, and uses them as a defense mechanism. It also concentrates the venom, making it far more venomous than the animal it "stole" the cells from. Video: Lucinda Fry‎ Source: IFL Science

This beautiful little creature is actually named Glaucus atlanticus and is a small sea slug found in in tropical and temperate waters throughout the world. Recently washed ashore in Queensland, Australia. Glaucus atlanticus feeds on other pelagic creatures, including the venomous cnidarian, the Portuguese man o' war. This sea slug stores stinging nematocysts from the cnidarian within its own tissues as defense against predation. Humans handling the slug may receive a very painful and potentially dangerous sting.
