Marine biologists from the Institute of Marine Sciences at the University of Portsmouth in the UK published a study on the feeding preferences of nudibranches, a kind of sea slug that might be targeting prey with full bellies.

Anthony and Jeff dive into the details to see if eating a animal that has just eaten is better.
