Featured Creature: Spotted Seahare

Sea Hare in St. Kitts

Its time to meet a mollusk... the adorable Spotted Seahare! This little fellow was found cruising along the bottom in St. Kitts and was quite happy to pose for a photo.

The herbivorous seahare's color is determined by its diet, which allows it to avoid predators by blending in with its favorite meal. When threatened, they can release a harmless cloud of thick, purplish fluid.

Some are even known to use a jet of water to propel themselves away from danger, but this guy was happy to meander along on island time, not minding the paparazzi.
