Beautiful And Rare Blue Dragon recently washed ashore in Queensland, Australia, and the video has gone viral.
Meet the blue dragon — probably among the most beautiful animals on the planet.
This Glaucus atlanticus and is a small sea slug found in in tropical and temperate waters throughout the world.
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.
