Caption: Nudibranch, a sea slug mollusc species of Cerberilla live in sandy substrates where they burrow beneath the surface and so are seldom seen. This animal was visible from over a metre, as fluorescents pigments in its body emitted light when targetted with a blue light. Probably Cerberilla annulata. Tondoba Bay, Marsa Alam, Red Sea, Egypt
