Land slugs and snails are dull affairs that leave little to be desired, but if you’ve ever been deep sea diving you will know that the ocean’s versions are much more vibrant. Hidden beneath the sea are hundreds and thousands of colorful slugs, in bright hues that would make you think they’re from another planet. Many of these colorful creatures used to be snails that shed their shells and evolved into sublime sea slugs.
