nudibranch and nudibranch accessories
Meet Gilbert, a 2.5 centimetre long nudibranch with a massively oversized gill, based on a living one of the same name (which was quite a lot smaller, and had a sensibly sized gill)
I imagine I’ve altered the colours and patterns on him quite a bit, since I was working from memory and have only a limited number of bead colours. I say him, but since nudibranchs are hermaphrodites it doesn’t matter which pronoun you use.
Interesting fact: The word nudibranch means ‘naked gill’, and refers to the large external gills (that can often be retracted) in some species.
