Sea Slug

Sea Slug
We found this rather repulsive creature on the beach at Cape Tribulation and it was obviously alive with what appeared to breathing holes (mouth and anus) at opposite ends. It was about 8-10 inches long and several inches in diameter. It swelled up and deflated and curled and uncurled, but we could not identify it. My best guess was some sort of Sea Slug, but that is only a guess.

Well, there are prettier soft animals in the world I fear than this poor beached form,, but perhaps all under water and healthy it would look much better and more distinctive?

It looks like some sort of sea slug or sea cucumber, maybe? In any case you captured it in all it's ugliness quite well! ;-)
