    Two Crowned Sea Goddesses

    Scientific name - Felimare Kempfi

    AKA Crowned Sea Goddess

     

    Like most sea slugs, the Crowned Sea Goddess dives head first into adventure, led by its pair of rhinophores, more commonly known as ‘horns’. The word ‘rhinophores’ comes from two classical Greek words: rhino = nose, and phore = carrier. Nudibranchs use their horns to smell the chemistry of the water and look for food scents. Their horns are key to their survival and are in constant danger of being damaged. To protect them, most sea slugs can withdraw their horns into a safe pocket beneath their skin, which they shut tight when they feel disturbed.
