It is a pretty colorful nudibranch and correct size so it's not difficult to find.
This nudibranch feeds mainly on sponges that allow it to secrete a toxin allowing it to defend itself.
We can hear the bull shark is very dangerous because of attacks near La Réunion island.
However, tens of them are living at 600 feet from the famous beach of Playa Del Carmen in Mexico. And there are no attacks.
The whale shark is the largest fish in the world!
Some whales are larger, but they are mammals, not fish!
Turtles are in economy mode when they are sleeping. If they are woken during night, they may not have enough air to return to surface.
So, please be careful during night dives!
