Yellow Nudibranch

This yellow nudibranch is one of the more colorful species of a group of creatures commonly referred to as sea slugs. These soft-bodies animals are common on the reef, where they forage for sponges, tunicates, and other small invertebrates. The fuzzy growths on top of the nudibranch are its gills, which it uses to extract oxygen from the water.
