Colorful Gastropod:  This is a nudibranch, basically a snail without a shell. The word "nudibranch" means naked gill. The tuft of yellow on the right side is the animal's gill cluster. Nobody is sure why some nudibranchs are so brightly colored. Some beleive that the coloration is aposematic, meaning that it tells other animals "Danger! I don't taste good!"

Nudibranchs are poisonous because they consume anemones and coral and store the poison. Because of this, they have no known predators.
