Short-tailed sea slug
This colourful sea slug is native to southern Australia, and can be found on rocky shores and reefs to depths of more than 100 m, where it eats sponges. Growing up to 15 cm long, it is distinctively coloured with a pink and orange body, white edges and small red spots. Short-tailed sea slugs have a small but distinctive tail, in which it stores unpleasant chemicals from its food, so that predators are discouraged when attacking it. When breeding sea slugs they lay spirals of transparent-white eggs on the reef.
