Jude F.
Jude was raised to love the ocean along with everything in it, and visits the tidepools as often as he can. During the summer, Jude discovered a nudibranch that he and his family had never seen before. They knew that a nudibranch was a kind of sea slug, but this one was white and quite unusual in appearance. After fruitlessly searching online to identify it and finding nothing, photos of him and the animal were emailed to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach and to Birch Aquarium in La Jolla asking for help in identification. When neither of their staff could identify the creature, the photo was sent to a gentleman who wrote a book about nudibranchs of the Eastern Pacific. The author was impressed! Jude had discovered a very rare Doris Tanya nudibranch!   Jude's passion for the ocean and love of exploring is infectious. His curiosity and knowledge of our planet grows with every new adventure.
