Zahl Danger and Beauty Dot the Tidal Flats of Bimini Upper: Two fore appendages of this arthropod, locally called stinging lobster or mantis shrimp, are fiercely toothed and capable of inflicting a painful wound. Bimini natives will not touch it with bare hands. Middle: The camera caught a beautiful flamingo tongue mollusk with its leopard-spot "slip" partly showing. The dappled tissue normally is wrapped out over the shell; if disturbed, the owner pulls it down and under. Lower: A mollusk without a shell is the sea slug. It belongs to a group known as Nudibranchiata (naked gills), for the lacy tissue worn on its back consists of exposed gills.
