The Most Amazing Animal in the Sea. Although most species of Cyerce, and the related genus, Polybranchia , are cryptically coloured, Cyerce nigricansbreaks the rule. It is one of the ‘icon’ species of the Great Barrier Reef, often being used in tourist posters and brochures. As with many brightly coloured sea slugs, this species produces distasteful secretions, and the cerata are easily cast (autonomy)when the animal is disturbed.Distasteful secretions and autonomy are two common defensive strategies sea slugs use against predatory fish.
