Dolabrifera dolabrifera, South Pacific. The Aplysiidae have tentacles (rhinophores) shaped like the ears of rabbits, from which they get their common name, "sea hares." Commonly behind the head is a neck-like region that merges into a plump trunk. The entire body is often covered with warts or other projections.
