Most Beautiful Sea Slugs From Indonesia!

Slugs, if we hear this name, many people would imagine an unusual snail without a shell. In Indonesia, people call this Siput Telanjang. It means "Naked Snail". Yup because this snail species doesn't have shell for their home.

I hope you keep stay in this page and not close the window when you see this picture or you could Miss the beautiful pictures :D lol

Slugs usually known as pest for the farmers and gardeners. Some people also feel disguted if they meet or see this gastropod because its shape. But its land slugs. How about the slugs in the sea? I think you wouldn't feel disgusted again or inconvenience by their attacks in your garden because they are different than the land slugs. The sea slugs are colorful, beautiful, and of course they are not pest.

There are more than 3000 species of the Sea Slugs around the world. The Republic of Indonesia as The Largest Archipelagic Country in the world also has the most species of the Sea Slugs. Of course i wouldn't share thousands of them in this article but i only share 40 species of Indonesian sea slugs with the most colorful and beautiful colors. Check it out! :-)
