The Sea Pig


The look of this creature can freak anyone. Sea pigs live on the depths of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. They are represented in abundance everywhere except in the North Atlantic and eastern Pacific Ocean and coastal waters of South America. The best neighbourhood for the sea pigs are clams, corals and sea urchins.
This creature belongs to the order of deep-sea cucumbers, wandering along the bottom of the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean at a depth of more than one kilometer and eats organic garbage bottom sediments, ie behaves almost like a real pig – just doesn’t squeal.

Depending on the type of specie has 6 or more pairs of legs that growths on its belly. When moving Scotoplanes Globosa moves not by the feet, but by a cavity in which the legs are growing. This cavity is filled with water. There are dozens of tentacles in its mouth that select small organisms from the bottom and tuck them into the mouth.
They also eat carrion. They have a good sense of smell that can detect the decaying carcass in total darkness. Submersibles have recorded thousands of porpoises, feeding on the carcass of a dead whale.
