Quick facts about Sea Bunnies:

1. The Sea Bunnies scientific name is Jorunna parva.

2. Sea Bunnies do not have eyes so they can’t see. Instead, they use the two little things on them that look like cute little bunny ears which are actually rhinophores to find their way around the ocean. The rhinophores on the Sea Bunnies are like tentacles that help them find their way around. The rhinophores also help them find food to eat.

3. Although the Sea Bunny looks furry like a real bunny their fur is actually caryophyllidia. Caryophyllidia is what gives the Sea Bunny its furry speckled appearance.  To read more about caryophyllidia: CLICK HERE

4. Sea Bunnies can get up to an inch long but, most of them are less than an inch long.

5. Sea Bunnies have a life span of up to one year.

6. The Sea Bunnies main diet consists of sea sponges. They sometimes eat algae and seagrass. 

7. These cute little Sea Bunnies are extremely toxic, especially to the ocean predators that try to eat them.

8. The Sea Bunny has gills on its backside that looks sort of like a bunny tail. It uses these gills to breathe with.

Short story alert:

Once upon a time there was a cute little fluffy Sea Bunny that roamed slowly across the ocean floor in search of food. Her Sea Bunny friends called her Fluffy. She was fluffy white with black speckles all over her fur. She was a beautiful Sea Bunny. She didn’t have eyes so she used her rhinophores to find her way around the ocean floor. Her rhinophores set on top of her head and looked like cute little bunny ears. Her body was covered in caryophyllidia that helped her sense her way around too. She would feel her way around the ocean floor until she found food to eat. Her favorite food was sea sponges. She loved to eat them. When she ate enough sea sponges, she would take a rest until she was hungry again. Then her search for sea sponges would continue. The end.
