Glow Your Own Way

A dazzling opalescent nudibranch appears to light its own way through an underwater forest of dark red algae. In the background, lightbulb tunicates delicately dangle like luminous Chinese lanterns.

This species is among the most colorful and beautiful of nudibranchs, which is saying a lot, as this family is known for its flamboyant colors and flashy forms. Some experts believe these gaudy features warn predators that this showy sea slug is venomous. You can find this tiny beauty at the Aquarium in the Rocky Shore exhibit.
