Concerning message #17246:
This specimen does indeed appear to be a typical A. vaccaria, as seen in the general Southern California area. I don't know of any other sea slugs in this area that reach that size.
They are very active and seemingly curious animals. I collected a medium sized (30 cm) specimen while I was doing my master's research (to use as a demonstration animal for a Biology lab), and was able to hand feed it Ulva, which it gulped down quite readily.
