Sea Hares; Anaspidea

Sea Hares are relatively large, primitive sea slugs that live on algae and have a water circulation system on their backs. We see them only occasionally on scuba dives, as they are seasonal creatures.

A fairly drab, well camouflaged sea hare. Note the large eyes, making the head look like a hare\'s.

Generally found in large groups trailing after each other or intertwined having group sex. Not bad on a diet of only algae!

Much smaller than Bursatella leachii, with a delicate red striping.
