Melissa Murray of the Australian Museum told 7 News that the fascinating sea creatures were members of the blue bottle family.

‘They’re absolutely beautiful,’ she said.

Every year, blue dragon slugs wash up on Sydney beaches, but they dіe as soon as they reach the water.

‘The glaucus atlanticus normally has tentacles in its system. If another creature tries to eаt it they use the tentacles as a defeпсe mechanism,’ Ms Murray said.

‘So if you do see one, don’t pick it up with your hands. Use a bucket with water instead.’
