Living Color Showcases the Beauty of Nudibranchs  [Video]

Nudibranchs are often called “sea slugs” and their name comes from the Latin nudus (meaning “naked”) and Greek brankhia (meaning “gills”). Back in 2007, we published a detailed article “Nudibranchs: Beautiful but Dangerous Marine Creatures” By Mª Victoria Bengoa Ruigómez which detailed various species, their anatomy, as well as their defense mechanisms.
