    Tricky one before Christmas … dont think its a fish, maybe some type of nudibranch?

    … after a little more internet exploration – I’d wager this animal to be Glaucus atlanticus, an apparently quite interesting species of nudibranch. It feeds almost exclusively on the notoriously venomous Portuguese Man o’ War and can even adopt their stinging nematocysts, storing them in specialised structures called cnidosacs where they are recycled for use in their own defence.

      I’d definitely wager a nudibranch, with a really surprisingly cute baby nudibranch next to it?
