Via the Gringo Gazette:

Excitement buzzes around La Ribera as the rare and captivating Glaucus Atlanticus, commonly known as the Blue Dragon or Blue Ocean Slug, has made a spectacular appearance. These ethereal creatures, floating gracefully, use the surface tension of the water to stay afloat, presenting a dazzling view to onlookers.

Known for their striking blue color and silver underside, they drift along the ocean surface upside down, a survival tactic that uses camouflage and gravity to their advantage. However, beauty comes with caution: these sea slugs harbor stinging nematocysts, pilfered from siphonophores, which they use as a formidable defense mechanism. While they are a mesmerizing sight, beachgoers are advised to admire from a distance, as handling them can result in a very painful and potentially hazardous sting. If you find yourself in East Cape, keep your eyes peeled for these enchanting yet dangerous ocean drifters!
