Unlike almost all mollusks, #nudibranchs are hermaphroditic, that is they possess both male and female sexual organs at the same time in adulthood. Individuals mate by aligning themselves head to tail, along the right side of the body, interlocking the male and female genitals at a common orifice.

#Nudibranch eggs are as diverse as the adults in size, color and shape. Some egg masses, like the adults, advertise their toxic nature by their bright, aposematic colors.  *Nudibranch eggs are laid in coils, spirals, and zig-zags. Bright colors warn predators that the eggs are poisonous.  #MarchOfTheNudis #diving #Lembeh #Underwaterphotography

#Nudibranchs employ completely unique and highly specialized series of defense strategies. This became necessary when the evolution of the group lead to the loss of their protective shell.  Aside from those species that evolved the ability to hide on the surface of their prey species by resembling its color and texture, two major defense strategies won out after the loss of the shell – chemical warfare and artillery. #MarchOfTheNudis #diving #Lembeh #Underwaterphotography
