Nudibranch 02.jpg
Kenting, Taiwan -- The relatively small nudibranch Glossodoris pallida trying to bridge a gap on the reef.<br />
<br />
Glossodoris pallida is semi-translucent-white all over with a thin yellow-margined mantle. Both its gills and rhinophores are also white.<br />
<br />
Glossodoris pallida, like many other nudibranchs, feeds on sponges. It stores chemicals it gains from the sponges inside its body. These chemicals are unpalatable to fish and other creatures, making the nudibranch much less likely to be eaten.
