Leaf-like sea slug feeds on light - Technology & Science A green sea slug found off North America's east coast not only looks like a leaf, but can also make food out of sunlight, just like a plant. U.S. researchers have found that the sea slug Elysia chlorotica can photosynthesize, using energy from light to convert carbon dioxide into sugars. "If you shine light on these slugs, they fix carbon dioxide and make oxygen just like a plant," Sidney Pierce of the University of South Florida told CBC Radio's Quirks & Quarks. Pierce reported his findings Jan. 7 at the annual meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology, and has submitted his research to the journal Symbiosis. The slugs look just like a leaf, green and about three centimetres long, and are found off the east coast of North America from Nova Scotia to Florida.

Once the phenomenon was spotted, the news organization set up time lapse cameras to capture the freezing salt overtaking starfish and sea urchins as it coated the sea floor in ice.
