The plakobranchidae sea slug Plakobranchus ocellatus moving across the ocean floor.
This sea slug is closely related to the Elysia species, and is one of the solar powered sea slug species. It does this by keeping whole single-celled plants (zooxanthellae) alive in their bodies which it farms throughout its life.
