Slate donned a bunny suit and scuba gear to hide the 160 hard-boiled eggs that were decorated with nontoxic colorings, to avoid negative environmental impact to the marine ecosystem.

The eggs were positioned in the eel grass near Grecian Rocks, a popular Key Largo snorkeling site. Two eggs were colored gold and could be exchanged for Easter baskets.
