AWESOME ANIMALS:

Sea Slug : Elysia chlorotica
They look leafy and there’s good reason! These little guys perform a cool trick called kleptoplasty. They utilize the chloroplasts from the algae they eat by absorbing them into their outer membrane. They can then collect the energy of the sun as a source of food…

yeah I know!

Had the pleasure of seeing Baba Yaga perform at Good Bye Blue Monday in Brooklyn this passed Friday. These guys can really rock out, bring the funk…and rock your socks off, out the door, and down the block! If you haven’t heard them perform, your missing out.
