Wart Sea Slug

Phyllidiella pustulosa

Description:

Wart Sea Slug This animal has a reversible throat that comes out of its mouth and sucks up the insides of sponges. It eats poisonous sponges and not only is it unaffected by the poison, the Wart Sea Slug stores the poison inside of its skin so that it becomes poisonous. What would happen if it ate chocolate?
