Thread: What The Heck Is This ?

    Default What The Heck Is This ?

    Snagged this in PWS in fairly shallow water...took a couple pics and sent it back down. Googled urchins and anemones and didn't see anything that looked like it. Thought my line was going to break but it finally came off the rock or whatever it was affixed to. Anybody know what it is?

    I think it could be an anemone, but with it's tentacles drawn in tight. I've snagged them too and if you agitate them they can suck up pretty tight and look like that. If not, it could be a sea cucumber pretty easily.

    It looks like a drawn-up anemone. From your description of it being "affixed" to something, that makes it even more likely to be an anemone.
