Adorable “Leaf Sheep” Sea Slugs Look like Cartoon Lambs

It’s a sheep!

It’s a cow!

No, it’s Costasiella kuroshimae (or ‘Leaf Sheep’ for short).
This adorable little sea slug, whose beady eyes and cute feelers make it look like a cartoon sheep, feeds on algae – just like the real thing!

What’s fascinating about the tiny ‘leaf sheep,’ which can grow up to 5mm in length and can be found near Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines, is that they are one of the only animals in the world that can perform photosynthesis (the others all belong to the sacoglossa sea slug clade).

When they eat algae, they suck out the chloroplasts and incorporate them into their own bodies in a process called kleptoplasty. This process, which otherwise can only be performed by single-celled organisms, essentially makes them solar-powered slugs!

Interesting creature. The lighting is also very interesting. Had to be shot with a bare minimum macro lens and artificial light. Thanks for sharing Mac :)

Yeah, the face reminds me of the sheep in the Wallace & Grommit videos.
