      Enypniastes sp. looks like a jellyfish, but is actually a transparent sea cucumber. You are seeing its intestines. It is a deep sea creature.

    • Hector Sandoval

      Enypniastes Enypniastes is a deep sea cucumber that lives at depths of up to 16,400 feet. The red area is the animals mouth. Around it are tentacles, which scoop up edible mud from the seafloor. From there, it enters the creatures gut.

      Census of Marine Life researchers discovered this unusual transparent sea cucumber (Enypniastes sp.) in the Gulf of Mexico. It creeps forward on its tentacles, sweeping detritus-rich sediment into its mouth. So far Census researchers have discovered more than 5,000 new species. They expect to find many more.

      This pink see-through fantasia, Enypniastes, is a swimming sea cucumber seen about 2,500 metres deep in the Celebes Sea. In 2007 WHOI biologist Larry Madin led a team of scientists and photographers from the US and the Philippines on an expedition to explore biodiversity in the deep Celebes Sea, supported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Geographic Society, and the WHOI Ocean Life Institute. The team used scuba diving, nets, cameras, and ROVs to study the deep sea in this area that has been called a "cradle of biodiversity for shallow water marine animals" Picture: CENSUS OF MARINE LIFE / Laurence Madin, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

    Veretillum Sea Pen by Gary C. Williams, California Academy of Sciences via A nocturnal Veretillum sea pen gathers dinner with its flower-like polyps unfurled as it feeds using the eight tentacles surrounding each polyp's mouth. (Sea pens belong to a particular type of corals, the octocorals, because each mouth is surrounded by eight tentacles.) #Sea_Pen #Gary_C_Williams #California_Academy _of_Sciences
