the flamingo tongue is a small marine snail that lives on coral reefs in the western atlantic ocean. like some sea slugs and other reef organisms, flamingo tongues incorporate chemicals from their prey into their soft tissue to provide a chemical defense against predation. the flamingo tongue’s bright colors serve as a warning of its poison to potential predators – a process known as aposometism.

this was my first blue ring octopus sighting in the wild. the way the blue rings flashed was so mesmerizing. i couldn't take my eyes off it, not because it is one of the most venomous marine animal but because it was so tiny and beautiful. 🐙
