Sea Slug

Sea Slug
Image by Samara Nicholas, published on 20/05/2012

This is an amazing Sea Slug found in the Whangarei Harbour Marine Reserve by snorkelers on an expedition with Experiencing Marine Reserves. This species, Philinopsis taronga, lives in mudflats and the sandy bottoms of harbours where it preys on certain molluscs which it can devour whole and then regurgitate the shells later.
