Sea Pigs!

Deep at the bottom of seas all over the world are sea cucumbers. (These are animals, not plants.)

And one type of sea cucumber is known by the scientific name Scotoplanes globosa. Did you see that? Even scientists call them globosa! But they're more commonly known as sea pigs. They're pretty cool animals. 
They just cruise along the ocean floor, eating and looking cute and disgusting at the same time. Learn more about sea pigs at Animal Planet. (I did!)
