Sea Hare

Firstly - sorry about the quality of this shot, it's not as clear as I would have liked! Nonetheless, it's an interesting creature. The Sea Hare is a large invertebrate which has no outer shell and which feeds on seaweed and algae, They are rarely seen when diving and are sometimes found washed up on beaches. This one was spotted on a dive at the Abrolhos Islands and was around 75cm long. The long appendages on the head look like ears, making it look slightly like a hare.


  1. It certainly is a fascinating looking creature, it took me a while to work out which were the fins, well done for spotting it!

  2. A very strange creature. Is its vague, such as from a different world from space. /Peter
