So if you haven’t seen that video yet, watch it. Also watch the others because they’re pretty funny. The Sea Pig, Scotoplanes globosa, are sometimes mistaken for their brethren the sea cucumber. Sea pigs have several choad legs and a big mouth that they use to intake food. They are mainly seen facing the same direction, against the current, so that their food is easier to catch. They eat detritus which is just waste and debris of any kind.
They are found in all of the oceans, even the southern ocean off Antartica. The only thing about that is they are found closer to the surface due to the temperature of the water. Normally they are found very deep, up to 3.7 miles, under the ocean surface. This means that scientists know very little because they’re difficult to reach, and they don’t know much about their ecology and behavior. They’re still trying to figure out if they’re social creatures because they always find them in great numbers. They also found that their numbers go along with how large they are- If they are more around 1000 in a group then they are smaller, but if they are larger they can be found in groups of about 100. Although the populations can fluctuate year to year, ranging from 100 to 1000 in difference.
But all the facts in the video are true, these are just some extra facts for your mind. But they’re not as funny. Sorry about that. I kind of suck.
