Project Description

The striped nudibranch (Armina californica) lives in sandy and muddy areas and usually remains buried during the day, coming to the surface at night to look for its favourite food – orange sea pens.  This nudibranch has its gills hidden in a groove as opposed to being exposed on its back.  The striped nudibranch can grow to 3 inches (7.5 cm) in length, with a range from northern Alaska to Panama.
