This Sea Slug That Looks Like a Fluffy Bunny Made Japan Going Crazy

Sea slugs aren’t exactly creatures you’d imagine to be lovely and cute, however Japan’s Twitter-sphere has simply rediscovered what’s probably the cutest sea slug ever – Jorunna parva, a cute sea slug that appears to be an adorable fluffy bunny.

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