Nudibranch, or nudis for short, are a kind of mollusk that are known for their spectacular colors and variation of forms. With over 3,000 species of nudibranchs out there it is no surprise that you find them almost everywhere. They are carnivores, feeding on sponges, sea slugs, and their eggs. They are also hermaphrodites, meaning that they have both sets of female and male reproductive organs. However, they cannot fertilize themselves. And so, they bumble around the sea floor looking for another one of their kind, mate, lay their eggs in lovely flower like spirals and continue on their way. This tambja verconis nudibranch, colored brightly yellow and blue with tiny blue tentacle protrusions, was hovering right by a spiral of eggs which it may or may not have just placed upon the reef in the Poor Knights dive site in New Zealand. 2012-2013.
