Did you know? The Solar Powered Sea Slug
Elysia chlorotica sucks up the algal plastids - akin to tiny 'solar panels' - that algae use to photosynthesize, and stores them in its gut lining.
The sea slug then uses them to provide its own food, effectively deriving its own food from sunlight. It’s highly unusual for an animal to behave like a plant and survive solely on photosynthesis. Elysia chlorotica is a solar-powered sea slug!
