WHERE THEY HANG ? Sea Cucumbers are another common critter you will see on a low tide on the shores around Bowen.

SUPER COOL FACTS ? A member of the echinoderm family, sea cucumbers cleanse the sand by removing nutrients from animal and plant remains. (Yep - they're natural filters!)

LEAVE NO FOOTPRINTS ? Please do not handle, as this can cause animals to expel organs and toxic substances (ewwww!) - and they don't like it too much!
