Cookie (Dough) Monster

This Three-Rowed Sea Cucumber gets its name because it has three distinct rows of podia on its bottom side (not shown). I guess they are all feet (sorry).

 

I think they resemble a roll of chocolate chip cookie dough. What do ya' think?

 

Don't be scared, ZOOM IN!

    Actually, when I dove in Saba the divemasters just called these cholocate chip sea cucumbers. I didn't even think they might be called anything else! Your scuba photos are great.

    Hey thanks pauldub! I love that name much better than the one I've been using.

    You're so sweet ahlimaslow. I am glad you're inspired, because I love your work.

    This is a nice one, I usually come across the common "Donkey Dung". I don't think I have ever post any Cucumbers, will have to look in the archives, I like the "zoom" function.
