All nudibranchs are sea slugs, but not all sea slugs are nudibranchs. See the gallery
I am on display in a touch tank at the floating Nature House at Montague for the summer season. I am rather shy and try to hide under rocks and seaweed, but I am so colourful that you will most likely see me. The food that I eat is very colourful which gives me a very brilliant colour. We are carnivorous and like to eat sponges, coral, anemones, fish eggs and other sea slugs. We breathe, digest and defend ourselves through our finger-like appendages that cover our backs.
