Slugs and Snails of all Colours

Sea slugs and snails are gastropods which come from the ancient Greek words meaning 'foot' and 'stomach'  which refers to the fact that the animals' "foot" is positioned below its guts!

Sea slugs can be brightly coloured, not like the terrestrial slugs you might imagine. 

Watch a group of sea hares eating and mating at the same time!
