Move over, chicks and hens. There's a new Easter-themed succulent in town. The internet is currently going crazy for Monilaria obconica, a rare variety of succulent that looks like a pair of green bunny ears!

 

These adorable plants are native to South Africa, and they're described as drought-induced deciduous plants. When the succulents sprout, they grow two little stems that look just like a pair of rabbit ears, and as they grow, the "ears" get longer. According to Cactus Art, rabbit succulents are relatively easy to take care of -- they need good drainage, a cool climate and more water during their growth period.

It's no surprise that these too-cute plants have taken the internet by storm, especially in Japan! The Japanese certainly love their "kawaii,” or cute items, so the little rabbit succulents quickly achieved a viral status.
