Following The White Rabbit

I spotted this tiny (12mm long) little nudibranch (sea slug) during an amazing Edithburgh Jetty night dive during the early hours of this morning.

I am still attempting to identify this little guy but in the mean time I’ll just call it the White Rabbit as the two leading rhinophores look like ears and the rear branchial plume makes for fine cotton tail!

In the same way that Alice took off down the rabbit hole or Neo after Trinity, it’s a white rabbit like this one that draws me away from a cosy bed into the chilly ocean in the small hours of the morning with camera in tow to see what wonders I can discover.
