<< Back - Next >> Next Lion's Mane Nudibranch photo>>
Lion's mane nudibranch, Melibe leonina, have a large expandable oral hood
which is fringed with sensory tentacles. When this Nudibranch is disturbed
it will swim away by flexing it's body while allowing it's broad leaf-like cerata
to break off like a lizard's tail and take off on it's own.
