Melibe Nudibranch - BIODIVERSITY

Melibe have developed an oral veil or 'fish net' which they use to scan the ground with. Constantly on the move, looking for victims, when found the veil contracts, trapping their prey.

They feed on hydroids, coral, sponges, anemones and crustaceans.
Widespread Western Indo-Pacific.
