This cute little guy is a Nudibranch (nu-dih-brank), one of the most colorful creatures in the world.
These amazing sea slugs are noted for their often extraordinary colors and striking forms. So far, more than 3000 species of these little moving rainbows have been discovered...but there are probably more out there!
Take a look at some of them below. They look like fancy candies or ice cream yummies, don't they?
And though they look scrumptious, I'll resist the idea of popping one in my mouth!
But I am astounded by the fact that for thousands of years people never knew these gorgeous nudibranchs existed. God is amazing, isn't he?
Let me know your favorite one...leave a comment for me!
