What animal releases purple ink?


Sea hares (Aplysia ) release a colorful purple ink when attacked. The purple ink helps the sea hare escape and is irratating to it's predators. I first discovered a sea hare on Pensacola beach florida when I saw a blob of goo and was shocked when this blob of goo started to move. When I moved the sea hare back into the ocean it let lose a stream of purple dye. Life is strange.
