This giant sea slug can weigh over 30 pounds

By  | 

Spotting a slimy slug as it slithers through a garden is gross enough for some, but just wait until you see what slugs are lurking in the ocean.

On a recent episode of Brave Wilderness, host Coyote Peterson enlisted the help of tide pool expert Aron Sanchez in an attempt to find a massive slug known as the black sea hare.

After about 45 minutes of searching in the tide pools of a Southern California beach, Sanchez finally lands his eyes on one of these slippery slugs, which can grow up to 3 feet in length and weigh over 30 pounds.

Fortunately, the slugs aren’t harmful to humans, but they’ll certainly gross a few people out.
