Geographic Sea Hare

Syphonota geographica


The clade Aplysiomorpha, commonly known as Sea hares, are medium-sized to very large Opisthobranchia with a soft internal shell made of protein. These are marine gastropod molluscs in the superfamilies Aplysioidea and Akeroidea


Saw this on the shore in less than half a meter of water. They are usually found in sandy area, burrowing under the sand during day time. Saw two of them, and when stepped near to them, they started to swim. Check out the video of it swimming here :


They can be variable in colour. Another Spotting I had was of lime green in colour :
