The Red sea cucumber is usually found between rocks or in crevices. Striking orange-red colors.
Spotted in a tide pool at low tide at Tongue Point.
Cucumaria miniata can be found from northern Alaska to northern Mexico. They live in rocky areas from the intertidal zone to a depth of 100 m, and are generally found wedged in crevices on docks or between rocks. Since they have the ability to stay attached to a substrate, they tend to frequent areas with higher currents in order to avoid predation.(Wikipedia)
