Salt water creatures (especially nudibranchs!) and their fresh water cousins.
Spanish shawl (Flabellina iodinea) is a species of aeolid nudibranch native to the west coast of North America, parts of central america and the Galapagos. The Spanish shawl is easily recognizable due to its stunning purple and orange coloration, these bright colors serve as warnings to potential predators that the cerata (orange appendages) are filled with dangerous stinging cells stolen from the cnidarians that they prey on.
