Red Sea Cucumber
<! -- Score is 0 --> Red Sea Cucumber, Cucumaria miniata to it's friends. These things are quite mobile - the bright red arms filter out food bits and then pull them inside to be consumed.
Species: Cucumaria miniata (Red Sea Cucumber)

Great Blue Heron
<! -- Score is 0 --> These were pretty good hunters - they were pulling fish out with every strike and I didn't even see fish.
Species: Ardea herodias (Great Blue Heron)
