Galapagos Dorid Nudibranchs (Tambja mullineri) As a grand finale we saw some beautiful blue nudibranchs mating! This romantic pair are Galapagos Dorids (Tambja mullineri). They only live here in the Galapagos. Each was 2-3" long. They breathe with the frilly part on top - the nude lungs (nudibranch). Nudibranchs are sea snails without shells - like slugs on land. Dive/snorkel trip to Floreana."
