You saw these things "snorkeling just off the beach?" They use snorkels?

Sorry. Old guy humor again. Back to the meds.

I concur- sea hare (Clade Aplysiomorpha), we have often found them "swimming" down Old River, and have seen them underwater on the rocks at Perdido Pass. I also recently saw one at the Boggy Point Launch, Orange Beach.
The common name "sea hare" is a direct translation from Latin, and derives from their rounded shape and from the two long rhinophores that project upwards from their heads and that resemble the ears of a hare. They have soft sort of rounded bodies with an "internal shell", and their "foot" has lateral projections. It was thought their "flight" was a means of escaping/ fleeing predators while dispersing "ink" or moving from one location to another.
They are considered good tablefare in Hawaii and China, often fried or cooked wrapped in a ti leaf.
I'll have to look and see if I still have a video of one and post it.

Aplysia the sea hare. Squirts a lot of purple ink if disturbed. Every now and then they beach themselves in mass. A friend of mine did neurological studies with them at NAS about 15 years ago. The NAVY found the topic interesting and hired him.
