Biodiversity #3 – The Nudibranch – which literally translates as ‘naked gill’ as they breathe through the branchial plume which projects from around their anus. There are 2-3,000 known species of Nudibranch, all have sensory rhinophores which they can retract. They are carnivorous and hermaphroditic, though they can’t fertilise their own eggs. Nudibranch are found throughout Australian waters.
