synapta maculata

20060416 UW 117.jpg

This is the business end of the hoover of the ocean floor.
Well, there are many species of holothurian (sea cucumber)
just as there are many brands of vacuum cleaner, but you
get the picture.

I find it fascinating to watch the arms one ofter another
curl up to push collected particles into the central opening.

other sizes: small original auto
