Caption: Mating Hypselodoris bullockii nudibranchs. Nudibranchs are hermaphrodites, having both male and female reproductive organs, but they cannot fertilise themselves so must meet to mate. This striking nudibranch has feathery external gills (yellow), and a pair of sensory rhinophores (also yellow) on the head. Filmed in the Lembeh Straits, Sulawesi, Indonesia.
