Hi Mr. Nudibranch (The Sequel)

tumblr_ne48hsOlw61r31v2no1_1280Harken back to March of 2013- we introduced you to Mr. Nudibranch! Now, in December of 2014- thanks to Carly of The Featured Creature, we’ve got Mr. Nudibranch (The Sequel.) She says this is actually a “Leaf Sheep Nudibranch.” Well, of course I knew that.

(So they’re their own flashlight!!)
