Looks like a sea cucumber, a couple of deformed frogs, an albino lizard, and a photoshoped goat to me.

sea cucumbers are a form of life found in oceans, although i have never seen one like that before, it may be a mutation of it's kind. it almost looks like an albino sea cucumber, or a sea cucumber that is usually not exposed to light, or whose previous generations were not exposed to much light.

they are the vacuum cleaners of the sea and are related to the star fish family.

here are a wide variety of sea cucumber pictures, there are many species of them:

Being a Divemaster, Ive seen plenty of sea cucumbers.

I cant recall any having extremities like this thing, they are usually just like a big black slug, but theres no doubt many different types.

It may be some form of exotic one, or maybe these things come out when it is removed from the water.

Sea cucumbers are a delicacy in some parts of the world, but I wouldnt be eating that thing.

Great find and good memory! Thanks for helping identify that thing!


Sea pig may refer to:

Scotoplanes, a genus of deep-sea holothurians (sea cucumbers) commonly called Sea pigs.

it is indeed a sea cucumber. Marine life gets crazy names all the times. the "dog-fish" is not related to the canine family in anyway. Sperm whales derive their name from goo in their cranial cavity, not from their reproductive organs. that particular sea cucumber looks like it has low skin pigmentation, it could be an "Albino", but dont quote me on that.

I heard about sea cucumber and thought it looked like a vegetable or something but never saw one. If they are all like this I better start preparing for sea cucumber invasion instead of zombie invasion. I mean holy hell!! these are worst than zombies.

No, I have never seen this before in my life.

I don't think you'll find What is Scotoplanes Globosa? on any recent Jeopardy! shows.

FOUND IT
I found another name for it, and I was right about it being a sea cucumber that is not exposed to much light (toot my own horn)
The same picture the OP provides us with is also provided as an example.


Cthulhu Larva (A.K.A. Abyssal Sea Cucumber)
The Deep Sea Holothurian, better known as an abyssal sea cucumber
