Photo by Nhobgood Nick Hobgood
- Thecacera is a type of sea slug which is a member of the Polycerida family.
- Nudibranch is made up of two words. Can you guess what they are?
Very good! Nudi from the Latin nudus and branch from the Greek brankhia.
- Now, do you know what they mean?
Super! Nudi means naked and brankhia means gills.
If you were to dress a nudibranch, how would you do it? Could you design an outfit for the nudibranch? Remember that gills are used for breathing!
