Malaysia is Home to an assortment of spectacular Nudibranchs
It takes dumb luck and a keen eye to find these prismatic molluscs of the sea, yet once found, these fascinating creatures showcase an entrancing spectacle of diversified colours, shapes and sizes. Nudibranchs (aka sea slugs) are marine molluscs that live on or near the sea floor, possessing no shells after their larval stage. The tentacles on their heads are known as rhinophores, which help them smell, taste, and move around, while their bright colours help deter or camouflage from potential predators. Nudibranchs are also hermaphrodites, altering their sex and mating with any adult they find.
