Sacoglossans

This page contains the most of the Sacoglossans we have seen at Kwajalein. Not all the Sacoglossans are included due to lack of photos. More will be added as we get them. Sacoglossans are all herbivores, feeding on marine algae, and are sometimes commonly referred to as "sap-sucking seaslugs.".
