The Slug Song, and more from Dr. Krug the slug drug lug

Elysia chlorotica

The sea slug Elysia chlorotica

I first discovered Dr. Pat Krug when he gave a talk at Scripps and revealed that he had named a new species of sea slug after Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer in order to “capture the spirit of sexual flexibility.” Now Dr. Krug is back with a great interview about the importance of discovering new species, and of course the sex life of slugs.

But the best part of the interview is a song about the “solar-powered sea slug” Elysia chlorotica. Don’t know what that means? Listen to the song by KPCC’s Sanden Totten. It’s the second stream on the little embedded player, or you can download it here.

Tip of the tentacle to Jann Vendetti!
