Ode To A "Slothful, Small, Simple And Silent Sea Slug"
By
Stella M. Turk MBE

Sea slug

This slug may be simple and low

But let a jet of water blow

And it will very soon know

That it need not go slow

If the jet

Is no threat.

This must go to show

We all learn as we grow.

Our slug may not boast a degree

But a sluggish version of Ph D!

Authors notes

 

Matt Ridley 1999 page 222 of Genome writes that if the gills of a sea slug are squirted with water, it will withdraw them but repeat this several times and will become habituated.
