I’m convinced, that this scenario happens with them quite often, and everyone is like, “eeww lovers are disgusting” and just leave them alone to be like that.
This beautiful creature is a Cyerce nigricans, a nudibranch that lives in Indo-West Pacific waters. Its bright colors warns predators that they should stay away, as it produces disgusting secretions as a defense mechanisms. If a predator decides it wants to try and eat it anyway, the leafy cerata that cover its back can easily be cast off, allowing it to escape.
