At least 1,200 species of opisthobranch have been described from the Indo-Pacific Tropics, and Anilao is one of the ultimate destinations for nudiphiles. Admittedly, the main focus of our trip was to see the wild and wooly nudis that abundantly populate the area. Kevinís friend, Peri Paleracio, was our extraordinary guide. Periís bubbly personality and entertaining stories made the trip even more fun.

This photo shows Phil Garner, Peri Paleracio, and Kevin Lee, all of whom live and dive for nudis. The gesture theyíre making is some kind of code, the meaning of which is known only to those in their secret societyÖ

Here we are meeting up with another world-class nudiphile, Mike Bartick, and his guests from Crystal Blue Resort.

My small offering of nudibranchs doesnít begin ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨to do them justice. See Kevinís collection at diverkevin.com for the real scope.
