Nembrotha kubaryana

Nembrotha kubaryana, also known as the variable neon slug, is a species of colorful sea slug. This species occurs in the tropical Indo-West Pacific. It uses the toxins in its prey ascidians to defend itself against predators. It stores the ascidian’s toxins in its tissues and then releases them in a slimy defensive mucus when alarmed.photo credits: dinca, Mark Harris, thalassagraphics, MerMate/Eunice Khoo
