Sequence of a feeding Melibe nudibranch, Puri Jati, Bali, Indonesia.
Melibe nudibranchs feed on tiny crustaceans using a large oral hood that is thrown across the substrate infront of the animal, sweeping up any prey like a net. They also use symbiotic algae stored in cerata along their back to capture energy from sunlight. Puri Jati is located on Bali's north coast. Its featureless sandy bottom is home to a huge variety of unusual and interesting species known as 'critters' to 'muck' divers and photographers. Bali is a very popular holiday destination for divers and offers a wide variety of different types of diving, from reefs and wrecks to mucks sites such as Puri Jati and Gilimanuk.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
