Eco TRENDING

These furry critters are making us fall in love with sea slugs: Yes, sea slugs!

Instead of shuddering at the thought of sea slugs, embrace them. We certainly will when they look as cute as these furry little monsters of the deep!

These tiny sea slugs are called Jorunna parva and, yes, they look just like cute little bunnies. But don’t be mistaken – these are sea slugs and those things that look just like bunny ears are actually rhinophores, which are scent/taste organs that help them detect chemicals in the water.

Japan is going nuts for them (as are we) – I mean, look at how furry they are! You’ll find these sea slugs from the Indian Ocean to the Philippines to Japan.

Keep an eye out if you’re in those parts of the world – you wouldn’t want to miss out on photographing one in the wild. Squee!
