“Due to the popularity of these magnificent creatures among hunters I see it as an obligation to share a basic knowledge of how to keep an Augur of Ebrietas species-appropriate.
Be responsible and refrain from keeping them if you cannot fulfill their needs. Living creatures are no toys!” 

A day with photoshop ended funny. Featuring Brago, my OC hunter and an excited Augur of Ebrietas.

The Rainbow Nudibranch (Dendronotus iris) is a terrifying beast of hellish fire and infernal flame that resides on the western coast of North America.

There are red ones, orange ones, pink, purple and white ones, and I guess that’s why they’re called Rainbow Nudibranches. But they all look like they’re on fire!

The flames are really branching cerata that allow this large sea slug to absorb all the oxygen it needs. The very biggest individuals can reach as much as a foot long, but they’re usually about a third of that.

Rainbow Nudibranches feed on the tentacles of tube anemones, which are a bunch of creatures that look like sea anemones but live in a tube.

The Rainbow Nudibranch pounces on them and won’t let go until they’ve bitten off some tentacles, even if they get dragged halfway down the tube!
