Someone pointed this out to me, but I didn't see it until it started moving. Pretty odd creature. Still hard to see

LOVE these little guys!!! Once you find 1 on your own, you'll start finding them all over the place! They come in many colors, and where there's one.....

This was on the North side of Grand Cayman. I believe the dive site was the Queen's Throne.

yeah, lettuce sea slug - they are actually one of the most common nudibranchs in the Caribbean. We have seen them ranging from lime green to neon blue! They are large for nudies too, about 2-4" long.

here is a pair doing what nudies do all the time! :smiley9:

That is an awesome pic. That could easily be a desktop background.

Great photos!

It's hard to spot these guys especially to guided dives where every one is in such a hurry.........

I got one on our last trip but by the time I got to snap a pic the group had moved over the next reef in a big hurry to go some where.
