- 07/01/2017Wonderfully unusual Creatures on our Planet:
Known as Nudibranchs and Melibe Sea Slug.
Melibe have developed an oral veil or 'fish net' which they use to scan the ground with. Constantly on the move, looking for victims, when found the veil contracts, trapping their prey.
These beautiful slugs are usually brilliantly colored and this in itself can act as a deterrent against predators. Some sea slugs secrete acid from stinging cells in their tentacles while others secrete acid from cells in their mantle.
Nudibranchs are slow moving, can swim or be propelled along either by muscular contraction or by millions of tiny hairs on the bottom of a fleshy 'foot', they have a voracious appetite and feed with a rasp like tongue.nudibranch melibe / Puri Jati /Bali2016 curious and Strange nudibranch melibe in bali https://www.facebook.com/emeric.benhalassa https://www.facebook.com/marco.cramarossa...
