Not much is known about the Red-lined Sea Cucumber. It's big, growing to some 50 cm (20 in) long and... well, there's those red lines. It's their stand-out feature, so they're also known as Red-striped, Peppermint or Candycane Sea Cucumbers.
They've been spotted in various parts of the Indo-Pacific, like the Philippines, Indonesia and the Solomon Islands. Their range is large but the species is quite rare.
Shame. I'd love to see a whole herd of these things. The sheer quantity of stripes would put zebras to shame!
