Always take a camera...

While cruising, there are so many things in nature that you just don't anticipate. That's why I always carry a couple cameras. Some events are so fast you never get an opportunity to take that once in a lifetime photo, but then, sometimes you are fortunate enough to capture those images, both video and stills.

I walked out on the dock tonight where my next door neighbor has suspended an underwater lamp. The things that I've seem have been fascinating to say the least, but none as fascinating at this large, swimming nudibranch.

Re: Always take a camera...

That was about a 7-pound snook cruising about three feet below looking for an easy meal. I've also seen a dozen squid, some shrimp, a few sea horses, lots of snappers, moonfish, and sharks ranging 4 to 10 feet, mostly nurse sharks, but the larger ones were bull sharks. I WOULD NOT jump into the canal for a short swim. Bull sharks can be very aggressive and they scare the Hell out of me.

Mark, I think it was feeding on something attached to the wall, but I'm not exactly sure what they feed upon.

I'll post some more vids tomorrow.

Re: Always take a camera...

I have to wonder , is the nudibranch related to a sea pig ?

No, I don't think so, it's essentially one of 3000 sea slugs, which vary quite a bit and distributed world wide in temperate and tropical waters.

Re: Always take a camera...

OK , 1 of 3,000 . The pig is a slug . So just maybe it could be a distant relative of a , what the the hell was that thing called , a nudeslug or what ever . i'm thinking the nude slug came from a pig slug's breathing hole . and what was your cam .
