79. A sea cucumber of the Synaptidae family

Subject: A sea cucumber of the Synaptidae family slouches over a sandy bottom in search for food. They use their tentacles to sweep over the substrate to catch food and deliver it into their mouth. These Echinoderms with a snake-like body can grow up to 2m/6ft.

Technique: I am sure that this animal doesn’t make any audible noise at all, but to increase the spectacle for the viewer I chose to add some sounds. It just makes the clip more enjoyable to watch.
