Looks like a piece of jewelry!
Never seen one before. How weird? Amazing creatures on this earth!
Where do you find these? I live in slug country (Pacific N.W.) not far from the Pacific ocean and have never seen such things. They are pretty cool looking...
It's a Nudibranch. That particular one (http://www.seaslugforum.net/factsheet.cfm?base=glauatla) eats Portuguese Man-o-Wars, and "it appears that they are able to select the most venomous of Physalia's stinging nematocysts for their own use"
Thanks mylady & blackwidow for the answer - & particularly to Marion for posting the puzzle & the question :-)
Sorry to hear that mylady. Glad to know it. I might have picked it up. Thanks for posting, marion.
Yes, it's a sea slug. And they sting!!!
Really, blackwidow? How interesting. Beautiful colors.
It's a sea slug.
It's amazing! Regretfully no idea what it is, but would love to know!
Don't have a clue, but it sure is adorable! Something aquatic?
