Fun Fact Friday: Neon Slugs

Usually my Fun Fact Fridays consist of diy tips, but today I am going to take a different route.  I have an appreciation for animals and species that do not usually get the regular spotlight.  As I was exploring the wonderful world of the internet, I saw this picture of a GIANT NEON SLUG!  Obviously I had to check it out to see if this was in fact real.

Well my friends, this thing is the real deal and it is called Triboniophorus aff. graeffei. I do not like saying that it is a  new specie but rather a newly discovered specie.  It measures at an amazing 8 inches and can be found on the East Coast of Australia. 

If you would like further information, National Geographics has a great article on it here.  Enjoy and have a happy Friday 🙂
