Weekly Beast: Nudibranch

Nudibranch is a soft mollusk that sheds its shell after their larval stage.  What is really astonishing about these creatures is their striking patterns and colors!  The Colour Lovers blog actually have a really great article on the color breakdowns of each one.

Though there are over 3,000 described species, scientists believe that is only half of the nudibranchs out there!

Here's a few of my favorites!
