Comments:
Of these two nudibranchs, the second one was somewhat odd. I spotted it crawling along the top of a pulsating moon jelly (I needed to enhance the photos for better quality). Some nudibranchs are known to extract and utilize the venom of certain cnidarians (an example of this is the blue dragon sea slug refining Portuguese man-of-war venom, and thus using the venom more potently than the original organism could), but I do not know if venom extraction is what this particular nudibranch was attempting. The first nudibranch was later sighted in a tidepool.
