Pigs of the sea

This strange-looking specimen is a Scotoplanes, a type of deep sea-dwelling sea cucumber. These creatures' squat, stubby legs and pudgy appearances earned them the nickname "sea pigs." Sea pigs live in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, and are typically found at depths of more than 3,300 feet (1,000 meters). Some related species may be found in shallower waters near Antarctica. Sea pigs feast on detritus that falls from the ocean surface by extracting organic particles from mud on the ocean floor.
