Melibe Colemani and Underwater Macro Photography

In scuba diving terms, the Melibe Colemani is classified as a "critter". Critters make popular photography subjects for Macro Photography. Since the Melibe Colemani moves very slowly, it is therefore difficult to find. However, once a colony of it has been found, it is possible to reliably find them in that area as they will tend to stay at that location for along period of time. There are several ideas of why they would linger at the same location, one of them being its food source being abundant in that area.


More fun statements about the Melibe Colemani. Some people describe it as a "string of snot" in the water. Others compare its oral hood to that of a fishing net. It is also interesting that the Melibe Colemani does not have teeth, therefore they would consume their prey in one piece after engulfing it under their hood.
