Nudibranch on my finger

Adult nudibranchs vary in size from 20 to 600 millimeters. The miniscule size of this nudibranch can be seen in comparison to my gloved finger.

Nudibranch - Janolus cristatus

Feeds on hydroids, small predators related to jellyfish.
The sting is then stored in the tips of the serrata on its back.
