A Sea Slug Symphony

The Ark in Space takes a look today at the nudibranch, a soft bodied marine gastropod mollusk which many people simply refer to, perhaps somewhat unfairly, as sea slugs.  You can see why they gained this nick name (even though it is often taxonomically inaccurate too!) but compared to the land bound version they are an explosion of color and grace.  Go take a look at just a few of the 3,000 species.
