Well, as hot as slug on slug action gets anyway.  Here are  a pair of Roboastra Gracilis nudibranchs doing a mating dance in Fiji.


And they weren’t just dancing.  Nudibranchs are hermaphroditic so when they mate, they fertilize each other.    In the picture below, you can see their genital papilla touching.

Dive site: Dream Maker

1/250th at f/11.  Shot with Olympus OMD EM5, 60mm Olympus f/2.8 macro lens, Nauticam housing and flat port, 2 Sea & Sea strobes.
