Friday Nudibranch Blogging


This is Hypselodoris zephyra. (Photo by Erwin Kodiat.)

And as a special treat for fourlegsgood, here's a video of Pleurobranchaea trying unsuccessfully to eat the nudibranch Flabellina iodinea.

Wow, that nudibranch really threw a hissy fit, didn't it?

I guess it didn't appreciate that snail thing trying to eat it.

I think of it as a victory dance.

I like the second part, where Pleurobranchaea gets about two inches away from Flabellina, turns tail, and runs for it.

Oh, I'm not really very patient at all. We all need a scratching-post now and then...
