Spanish shawl (Flabellina iodinea) is a
nudibranch native to the
North American west coast, ranging from
Baja California Sur,
Mexico, and even the
Galápagos Islands. Nudibranchs are carnivorous sea
slugs. They are among the most colorful creatures on earth. Their color patterns make them invisible or warn off predators as being distasteful or poisonous.
