So you thought last week’s sea bunnies was cute did you? Well take a look at these! Costasiella Kuroshimae AKA ” Leaf Sheep ” is a special species of sacoglossan sea slug which has beady eyes and a flat face that makes it look like an adorable cartoon sheep. Add to this already cute face some droopy feelers and a phosphorescent leaf-like body and you’ve got yourself the cutest sea slug in the ocean!
The Costasiella Kurohimae can grow up to 5 millimeters in length can be found in the Philippines, Indonesia and near Japan. These babies live on green algae and they use the chloroplasts from their food to keep their own energy in something called kleptoplasty. This is one of the only non-plant organism in the world that can perform photosynthesis. They can survive up to a few months with the energy from kleptoplasty
