Seaslugs are chunky tube-like creatures that essentially function as mobile sea anemones. They are slick to the touch and fairly squishy with several small tentacles extending from one end. Their bodies come in all sorts of colors and can even glow in the dark. Seaslugs will propel themselves through the water by retracting and expanding their tentacles in a rapid fashion. As they move through the sea, small globs of clear ooze are spewed through a hole at the center of the tentacles, acting as waste disposal for the creature.
Seaslugs are medium-sized creatures of marine life, and can grow as large as one’s forearm (one foot long). They are typically between four and six inches in diameter regarding thickness, but their tentacles can expand for a few more inches beyond this.
Although Seaslugs are capable of moving freely throughout the open ocean, some may elect to remain close to the sea floor, especially in more shallow areas. They can thrive in places with or without light, in high or low heat, but rapid currents can more easily damage their soft and fleshy exterior. Seaslugs will often latch onto hard surfaces in order to remain rooted in such situations.
Seaslugs are fairly common ocean creatures, found in all areas of the ocean excluding deep ocean trenches where the pressure becomes too high for their fragile bodies to sustain.
Seaslugs are very mobile creatures, but may also take root by coral reefs or in the sand of the ocean floor. A Seaslug roots by drilling its flat end into the ground, leaving only a small portion of its body and the tentacles exposed to catch prey.
Seaslugs feed on microorganisms such as plankton, and bacteria. On occasion, they have also been known to consume small fish, and are considered to be carnivorous.
Seaslugs are not hostile nor tameable creatures, acting as very simple lifeforms that eat, reproduce, and die. Seaslugs reproduce similarly to sea anemones, laying eggs for fertilization by any Seaslug that swims by.
- Propel themselves using several small tentacles.
- Spew blobs of ooze into the ocean while moving.
- When underwater, Seaslug ooze is very sticky and will slow down creatures that try to swim through it as if swimming through tar.
- Outside of water, Seaslug ooze will lose its thickness and become liquid like water.
