Almost mimicry

Sole on sand

Nudibranch like this specimen are all but mimicry

Sponges on rock

No mimicry for these red Apogon aureus on rocks

Yellow stripes, algae and dream fishes

No mimicry for the octopus eye

Radial symmetries

Radial symmetries

When feeling in danger, octopuses spread out their arms, pump water through their siphon and exhibit phosphorescent pigments. Octopuses are animals with bilateral symmetry, despite these postures make them looking like radial. “My” octopus did not ink, maybe it was not so frightened after all.

Sedentary marine tube worms quickly retract their colorful bristles (visible) in their calcareous tube (not visible). Despite their exposed, radial head, they are bilateral annelids

Sea anemones are true radial animals. This anemone belongs to the Actinaria subclass

Sea urchins (Echnoidea) are true radial symmetry animals

A runaway octopus with its usual pigmentation

This sea anemone belongs to the Spirularia subclass

Sea stars (Asteroidea) are true radial animals. This specimen is crawling through a bed of peacock tail’s algae.

No sand can be collected, no shell can be picked… and of course no sea creature can be fished. That is why the waters comprised in the Natural Marine Area of Capo Carbonara swarm with fishes.
