Comments : This is an example of a pure white Alabaster Nudibranch, which seem to be the most common color variation I encounter. In this photo, you can clearly see the feathery looking rhinophores on the animals head. Three Tree is a great place to encounter Nudibranch of several different varieties. The muddy sloping bottom provides ample feeding opportunities for these aggressive predators.
