This rotund nudibranch, Asteronotus hepaticus, is a member of the Discodorididae family of sea slugs. Couldn’t find an actual size on this red beast but it looks quite larger than most nudibranchs I’ve featured in the past. Let me know in the comments if anyone knows how big these fellows get!
I have a confession: I love animals. Join me and the rest of the Featured Creature community as we learn about the weirdest, coolest, and craziest animals out there. Including your dog, Mr. Scrufflebutt (if you submit him!).
