  • Some nudibranchs are poisonous. They retain the toxins from their prey.
  • The tentacles on their heads are sensitive to taste, touch and smell.
  • Some nudibranchs store algae in their tissues. They live off sugar produced by that algae during photosynthesis.
  • Nudibranch can only detect light.
