Spotted Flatworm

Notes:

The toxin in flatworms is TTX; a neurotoxin that blocks the signals that go to your muscles. A toxin that is so effective that with a tiny amount; it could switch off your heart. I think that Leah has found the legendary flatworm that the juvenile Many-Spotted Sweetlip pretends to be. Luckily she didn’t eat it! Guardian: Leah Hall
