Watch: Sea Slugs, the Little Fluffy Bunnies of the Ocean

Check out a video and gallery below of Jorunna – a sea slug genus with big floppy ears, a fluffy tail, and a brightly colored body.

Images of the adorable Jorunna sea slug are making the rounds today. Though the little creature is not a new discovery, it is hard not to see why photos of them are so popular: they are basically sea bunnies.

In parts of Asia, especially Japan, they are kept as pets, while they are all but unknown in most of Europe and America.

Those big floppy ears on their heads? Actually rhinophores – basically, a pair of noses specialized for chemical detection under the sea. Somehow, knowing they have a pair of big floppy noses on their heads makes them even more cuddly.

Oh my goodness.

So what do you guys think? Does Adorabilis have competition? Are going to make these two fight it out, in a vicious one-on-one tickle fight?
