Sea Cucumbers

Sea Cucumber

Sea Cucumber
These strange looking animals are related to starfish. They get their common names from looking vaguely like a cucumber. This species is found on the south and west coast of Britain and ireland. It is demersal, spending its time crawling along the sea bed, Cotton spinners ear the silty muds and sands that make up the sea bed where they are found. They cannot digest the silt itself, but strip off the layer of organisms inhabiting the sands surface.
