Sea Bunnies Are Actually Slugs, But They’re So Cute You Won’t Care.
An insanely adorable social media trend has started in Japan, and it centers around something that no one would normally consider to be insanely adorable: the sea slug.
This sea slug is different from the rest, though: It has "ears" and looks fuzzy, just like a cute little bunny. Apparently, the slug is called the Jornunna parva, the Japanese name for which loosely translates to "black speckled velvet sea slug." Even cuter? Divers have nicknamed it "goma-chan," which translates to Little Miss Sesame.
Behold all of the cuteness below.
