Hunt for a Small Red Sea Cucumber

Today @wild_wind posted up this obs taken at Island Bay, Wellington of a small red cucumber so something new to look for.

Found in the intertidal zone in a rock pool with neptune's necklace, you need really good eyes to spot this.

The next photo shows it in situ - look for the small red in the middle of the photo - this will give you an idea of how small it is!

Happy Hunting!
