It is obvious how the construction of this crested nembrotha"s (Nembrotha cristata) rhinophores have been designed in order to maximise their surface area. Like the cooling fins on a motornike engine, this increased surface area allows them to sample more water around them and hence obtian a better picture of their environment.
