This species of sea urchin is aptly named "Exquisite Urchin". The species was discovered off the coast of New Caledonia in 2006. Makes you wonder how many other gorgeous creatures are lurking in the depths of the ocean.
"Sea Bunnies" are a type of sea slug called Jorunna parva. Most of them are less than an inch (2.5 centimeters) long and can be found throughout the Indo-Pacific Ocean from South Africa to the central Pacific. Though the most images of these animals show white animals with black spots, these sea slugs are usually yellow or orange.
