House Reef Sighting: Nudibranch – Risbecia Apolegma

Seaventures house reef is one of the best dive sites in the area. If you are a fan of nudibranch, or also known as sea slugs, our house reef is a place to dive at. One of the sightings that you can see is the purple and yellow nudibranch – risbecia apolegma.

Small in size, they are a sight to behold underwater. However, as beautiful as these creature are, they are toxic. The tentacles on their heads are highly sensitive, assisting them to smell, taste, and feel their way around.
