If you read my post A Moment of Holothurian Behavior, you know how ecstatic I was to witness a holothurian feeding on the sediment. Well, a picture is worth a thousand words, so they say, and I want to compound that by showing you the video of it. This video is a collection of the highlights from Dive 6 on the Okeanos Explorer, taken on April 18, 2014. About 1:50 minutes into the video you will see what I tried to describe before, an amazing experience!
Though this expedition has already drawn to a close, NOAA's Okeanos Explorer will return in a few months for another expedition. Until then, I will take this chance to blog on some of the incredible things and creatures we saw, one of which fascinated me even more than watching this adorable holothurian feed, if that is possible for you to believe!
