Spotted Flatworm

Guardian: Leah Hall

The toxin in flatworms is TTX; a neurotoxin that blocks the signals that go to your muscles. A toxin that is so effective that with a tiny amount; it could switch off your heart.

I think that Leah has found the legendary flatworm that the juvenile Many-Spotted Sweetlip pretends to be.

Luckily she didn’t eat it!
