Sea Bunnies: Japan Is Going Crazy About These Furry Sea Slugs

ADVERTISEMENT

Sea slugs aren’t exactly creatures you’d consider to be adorable, but Japan’s Twittersphere has just rediscovered what is probably the cutest sea slug ever – Jorunna parva, a sea slug that looks like a fluffy bunny.

This tiny sea slug’s bunny ears are actually rhinophores, or chemosensory scent/taste organs that help them detect chemicals in the water and make their way across the ocean floor. They can be found from the Indian Ocean to the Philippines to Japan, where photos of them have become popular.

Idiots wanting them as pets already. No doubt we will be soon seeing them in eastern dishes and trapped in key chains. Admire beauty from a distance but leave them alone..
