Bornella anguilla by NocturnalSea Bornella anguilla by NocturnalSea
A graduation present for a friend.
The eel-like sea slug Bornella anguilla, along with the Harlequin Shrimp (Hymenocera elegans) and several Helmit Urchins (Colobocentrotus atratus).
Yes, I know everything is ridiculously out of scale (in real life, the helmet urchin would probably be the biggest animal), but I was going more for style than accuracy.

Nice, nice, nice! I love the stained-glass pattern of the slug.

You know helmet urchins are edible?

Yep. Mostly the gonads, I hear. Can't imagine there's too much meat beyond that on any echinoderm, though.

Actually, the book I read it in gave me the impression they eat the whole bugger in Hawaii.
