Moreover, how big do sea slugs get?
Sea slugs can range in size from just a few millimetres to more than 30 centimetres in length and can be found in a variety of colours and shapes. The sea slug is a hermaphrodite, meaning that the sea slug has both male and female reproductive organs.
Likewise, are sea slugs dangerous? Some sea slugs are toxic, but this sea slug has not previously been known to contain this particular toxin. Sea slugs naturally produce toxins to deter predators, such as fish, from eating them because they are vulnerable, being soft-bodied and slow-moving.
