Tambja olivaria is a really stunning nudibranch. It’s olive body marked with yellow stripes and black accents make it quite the specimen. You might be inclined to handle this guy if you ever come across one, but be warned – DO NOT! It has been reported that this creature exuded masses of green pigment when touched and produced an acid like burn on a collector’s hands when it was being picked up. This is definitely a look-but-do-not-touch case.
