Sea hare from Scarborough

Yesterday I saw something I'd never seen before: a sea hare. Adrian Norris from the Yorkshire Naturalists Union found it whilst running a marine mollusc course with Paula from Seasearch NE (an organisation for divers who record the marine species they see). Sea hares are marine molluscs and get their name from their rounded shape and from the "rhinophores" (sticking up bits near the front of the animal), that are said to look a bit like hares ears. What do you think?
