By: Peyton Greene
Slugs include adaptations such as a leafy structure which allows them to blend in in its marine environment.
The sea slugs are a member of the clade Sacoglossa, which makes them a sap sucking sea slug.
As an adult, the slugs maintain their food source from consuming chloroplast cells from the alga.
The Elysia Chlorotica have no major predators.
Sea slugs do not have a beneficial behavioral adaptation. They spend most of their time floating in the water to maintain sun exposure.
