[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Rüppell’s wart slug (Fryeria rueppelli) is endemic to the Red Sea and it grows up to 4 cm long. Member of this genus is different from all the other wart slugs in the position of the anus. It’s located at the posterior end below the mantel.

This wart slug is fairly common around Hurghada abd this one was found on 8 meters depth at a dive site called Marsa Abu Galuwa.

It’s really hard to take pictures of objects that lay on white coral sand since it’s so easy to over exposure the sand. And the sand also reflects the strobe light well also.

Picture converted from RAW, cropped and resized with PS.

What a beautiful creature, well taken even on the highly reflective white sand. His "warts" stand out very well. Well done.
