Sea Pigs

The 'sea pig' is a type of sea cucumber that lives on the ocean floor. It also looks utterly bizarre.

That was one of the things I learnt at a university open day today. There was also some other deep-sea creature that was, essentially, a large brown ball. I haven't been able to find any pics, though. This is unfortunate, since it practically represents this community.
