Rabbits and hares are among the animals that are best associated with spring (ha ha, a pun!). Our creature of the week is called the California Sea Hare. This animal, however, is no rabbit. In fact, sea hares or sea sl...ugs are among the largest species within the gastropod class (a class which includes snails and slugs). Sea hares, like rabbits, are herbivorous, and many species have the ability to ink when bothered. California sea hares, in particular, are being used in studies of learning and memory neurobiology. Read about all these facts and more about this fascinating animal at the link below!
