Sea cucumbers have a famous defense mechanism, they discharge their guts at predators, and regrow them later. Another little known defense mechanism they have is their ability to liquefy themselves. Essentially, they unhook the bonds that keep their cells together and let themselves flow into (or out of) awkward spaces.
Sea cucumbers may seem pretty boring at first sight, but there's much more to them than meets the eye. These little guys have one of the most wonderfully disgusting animal defense mechanisms. When threatened, the sea cucumbers begin to violently shake their bodies and then… they shoot their intestines out of their anus! The sticky mess entangles the attacker and usually makes it run away (screaming "Eww, gross!", I figure).

Photo by Mehmet Karaca/National Geographic Photo Contest Two praying mantises appear to be boxing on a narrow twig in Kahramanmaras, Turkey, located at the foot of Ahir Mountain. The mantis insect family has more than 2,400 species. It is commonly called a praying mantis because of the insects’ prayer-like posture with folded fore-limbs.

Astropecten articulatus or royal starfish is a sea star of the family Astropectinidae. Location: Daytona Beach. (photo by Mark Walz)
Royal Starfish – This beautifully colored sea star is a carnivore and feeds on molluscs, which it catches with its arms and then takes to the mouth. The prey is then trapped by the long, moving prickles around the mouth cavity. Unlike other starfish, it swallows food whole.

Red Sea in February is full of strange translucent creatures. It's the jellyfish, ctenophores and salps. They have appeared on our planet long before us, but now for us they look like alien race, but not the typical representatives of the animal world. Ocean and the creatures who inhabit - it's another universe, the cosmos, and you can see it by yourself. Here they are.

This image of the long sought-after giant squid is part of a Discovery Channel documentary on the largest deep sea creatures. Watch the video!
A giant squid has been photographed alive for the first time in the deep sea off Chichi island, Japan. Squids can be as long as a school bus and weigh up to a ton, but since they're deep divers, it has been difficult to find them in the ocean. (Discovery Channel)
EXCLUSIVE VIDEO OF GIANT SQUIDS: At last, researchers have captured footage of the giant squid - one of the most elusive creatures in the animal kingdom. How is it different from other big squid? Trace has the details.
Screen grab from footage captured by NHK and Discovery Channel taken in July 2012 shows a giant squid in the sea near Chichi island. The squid was spotted at a depth of 630 meters using a submersible in July, some 15 km east of Chichi island in the north Pacific Ocean. Giant squid filmed in Pacific depths: Japan scientists | AFP.com
SCIENTISTS and broadcasters have captured footage of an elusive giant squid roaming the depths of the Pacific Ocean, showing it in its natural habitat for the first time ever. Japan's National Science Museum succeeded in filming the deep-sea creature at a depth of more than half a kilometre after teaming up with Japanese public broadcaster NHK and the US Discovery Channel.
