Philippines Photo Gallery: Anilao sea cucumbers

We took an underwater photography trip to the Philippines in December 2016.

Sea cucumbers are echinoderms with a leathery skin and an elongated body cavity containing a single branched gonad. They have an endoskeleton just below the skin. The mouth is surrounded by tentacles.
