Sea slugs are not exactly the creature you would consider adorable or cute, but recently, a twitter user from Japan has rediscovered a sea slug that looks like a bunny – and it changed the way we look at those tiny creatures.

The “sea bunnies” are actually called rhinophores that have chemosensory scent/taste organs, which 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 and Japan.
