Three individuals spotted. All soft bodied. Probably nudi branchs, a local species of sea hare. Found rolling about in surf curled up with purple ink/ dye oozing out of glands! Think this might be a sign of predation or something to do with breeding cycle but not certain. Varied in size from 1 inch to 4.
Sandy bay at one side of rocky headland. Shallow inter tidal.
Slightly concerned that something was causing stress to these creatures, but also realize it could be part if their natural life history.
