Another sea hare of Cottesloe!

My friend Wang Xing knew that I went snorkeling today and asked whether I saw anything new or interesting.

The stirred-up water wasn't interesting. I hardly saw any fishes because of that!

Anyway I saw a sea hare (Aplysia species?) . A swimming sea hare! It wasn't very big. Probably about 10 cm in length.

I saw it undulate its winglike flaps (= parapodia) to swim around. It just looked like it was dancing in the water. The dance simply looked nice to me. But I suspect choreographers would find it really inspirational!

Pretty animal!
