Can chlorophyll can be introduced into our bodies
The only known animals that practice kleptoplasty are sea slugs in the clade Sacoglossa. Several species of Sacoglossan sea slugs capture intact, functional chloroplasts from algal food sources, retaining them within specialized cells lining the mollusc's digestive diverticula. ... This very unusual ability has led to these sacoglossans being referred to as "solar-powered sea slugs".
The sloth’s body is itself a habitat. In addition to various invertebrates, the sloth’s shaggy coat, or pelage, harbours two species of blue-green algae, each hair having grooves that foster algal growth. The algae give the sloth a greenish hue, making it one of few mammals with a green coat—excellent camouflage for a slow-moving tree dweller.
