Seth discovered these specimens recently. He sent these photos on and gave me permission to share.
Recently, Seth and I went looking for marine life near the Yacht Club at Eastern Beach. We were having a typical night. He had found a number of fish, an eel, biscuit stars and sea cucumbers.
After 90 minutes, Seth shouted out “I found a sea slug!”
Cue the excitement.
My parents and nephew often go to Eastern Beach to look for marine life. I rarely go with them, as I live on the other side of town and don’t catch public transport at night. I still ask mum to send me photos from their trips and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the images she has sent of these sea cucumbers. It is so fascinating seeing them up close. I’ve only ever seen them after they’ve washed up onto the shore.
