An amazing nudibranch that feeds off of physalia (blue bottles and man o wars) by floating upside down on the surface of the water.
What an amazing looking critter. great images Scott.
They do acquire stinging cells from their prey (blue bottles) but dont seem to be very strong. I never had a problem when they washed against my legs or hands.
@Scott-are the spines poisonous?
It is such a lovely creature!!
Thanks, wish I found them more often
looks really different compared to other sea life I've seenstill cool though
Sounds like its time for a vacation Daniel
What I would give to see one of these in the wild! Lovely :)
Beautiful creature. Great spotting Scott!
And people go out to space to look for aliens and extraterrestrial life...They should join Project Noah. Incredible creature!
Thanks so much, lovely animal, wish I had my good camera for it though, oh well

Amazing! This is one of my very favorite species. Thanks so much for sharing!
Thanks. They will actually take the stinging cells from their prey and use them for their own defense.
