"Sea cucumbers are similar to sea urchins and sea stars but are far more slender and softer. When threatened by a predator, they expel part of their internal organs as a natural defense. This is to blind and entangle the enemy so the sea cucumber has a window of escape. Some types of sea cucumbers allow predators to feed on their internal organs while they escape. Don't shed a tear for them, though as the internal organs grow back after a while."

Sea cucumbers are echinoderms from the class Holothuroidea. They are marine animals with a leathery skin and an elongated body containing a single, branched gonad. Sea cucumbers are found on the sea floor worldwide. Most sea cucumbers, as their name suggests, have a soft and cylindrical body, more or less lengthened, rounded off and occasionally fat in the extremities, and generally without solid appendages.
