Plankton of the world, beware! While most nudibranchs, or sea slugs, crawl and graze, the melibe sweeps its hood through the water like a net, capturing unsuspecting tiny drifters. A fringe of tentacles interlock and trap prey as the hood collapses to help the slug digest its meal.
Melibes may be expert plankton snatchers, but how do these soft-bodied invertebrates escape being a meal? Researchers have followed their noses to the melibe’s uniquely fruity smell—noxious secretions which may ward off nibbling fish. They can also “swim” away from predators by wiggling from side to side.
Living on giant kelp fronds or sea grass, melibes live higher up in the water column than most seafloor-bound nudibranchs. They’ve adapted well to the vertical life—as you can see in the background, their white ribbon eggs hang and sway with currents.

Hey! Remember when Discovery Channel actually educated people (with
good actual verifiedscience)?
And I recall a day when Animal Planet was about the animals.
When I was a kid watching Animal Planet:
-Steve Irwin (RIP)
-top 10 most extreme
Post 2008 re-branding:
-treehouses (how does that educate people on animals???)
-Ice lake rebels (which is apparently about outlaws fighting over turf or some shit)
-Tanked (which could do so much more, like not sticking fish in with fake coral in under-established tanks)
When I tell people I used to watch Animal Planet as a kid I have to follow that with an explanation of what the channel used to stand for.
