Hooded Nudibranch   (Melibe leonina (aka: Melibe dalli, pellucida, and Chioraera leonina, dalli))

(aka: Lion Nudibranch) This unusual nudibranch is characterized by it's large "hood" which it will often use as a sail to carry it to new locations. It is reported that they emit a sweet watermelon-like smell when removed from the water.
