Spanish Shawl

The Spanish shawl is a sea slug that lives in the Pacific between British Columbia (Canada) and Punta Asunción (Mexico). Its name might sound cute but they look very weird. They shine in the brightest colors, so bright in fact that they look poisonous. Its body is purple, its frills orange and its sensory organs bright red. But it’s just coloring to give the impression of being poisonous.
