Comments : Pink Nudibranchs must either feed on Seapens or feed on other creatures that eat Seapens. At times there are thousands of Seapens located on the gently sloping muddy bottom of Seahurst Park. When the Seapens are around in abundance, I usually find behemoth Pink Nudibranchs. Accompanying the Pink Nudibranchs at this site are large Striped Nudibranchs and Alabaster Nudibranchs. I have seen Pink Nudibranchs here well over 10 inches long, which is about twice as long as I have seen them anywhere else.
