Indeed I do know it, and a great find it is. Rat-tailed sea cucumber, Paracaudina chilensis. They’re subtidal, in or on soft surfaces, but they sometimes appear in great numbers as beachcast. I’ve only seen them once in person, and I’ve heard of a few beachcast events in Washington. Vey cool. I’d love to hear details, like date and if there were many on the beach. Preceded by big surf perhaps?
Thank you Steve!!! Rat-tailed sea cucumber – what a name 🙂
I took the photo on Sept. 26, 2020, around 8:30 a.m. on Long Beach. A couple days before I had noticed some tiny pink gelatinous forms in the foamy wrack, as the tide was moving from high to low, however I didn’t examine them closely. This one stopped me in my tracks! Thank you for your expertise in all things intertidal!
Excellent! Say, would you mind if I use your photo in my sea cucumber page? I propose to use it in collage of 3 to 5 images of rat-tails I already have. I’ll credit the photo however you want. If you have any questions, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And, no pressure at all if it doesn’t feel right.
Cool. Honored! Will get back with you on email.
Oh! for a day on the Beach and a trek through the Dunes……. seems so long ago since we were able in these strange days. Now!…Rat-tailed Sea Cucumber, that is something new for us. We learn something new of Facebook everyday. 🙂
One of the joys of this WordPress community! Cheers, Lindy

How sweet of you to link my photo to your poem, Janet. I feel honored.
I’ve always been fascinated by Mantises, so when I see them in the dunes, I feel really lucky. On this afternoon, the trail was fairly dry, and there was no wind at ground level. When I noticed movement in grasses that were still, I stopped to explore with my camera.
