Ceratosoma trilobatum is this week’s New Week Nudibranch! It’s a simple but pretty nudi that I thought you would all enjoy.

Most species of Ceratosoma have a long curved dorsal ‘horn’ which acts as a defensive lure attracting potential predators to the part of the animal which contains the nasty and definitely NOT tasty chemicals stored from their food.
