In New Leaf

In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this creature.

"Sea cucumbers are similar to sea urchins and sea stars but are far more slender and softer. When threatened by a predator, they expel part of their internal organs as a natural defense. This is to blind and entangle the enemy so the sea cucumber has a window of escape. Some types of sea cucumbers allow predators to feed on their internal organs while they escape. Don't shed a tear for them, though as the internal organs grow back after a while."

Further information

Main article: Sea cucumber on Wikipedia

Sea cucumbers are echinoderms from the class Holothuroidea. They are marine animals with a leathery skin and an elongated body containing a single, branched gonad. Sea cucumbers are found on the sea floor worldwide. Most sea cucumbers, as their name suggests, have a soft and cylindrical body, more or less lengthened, rounded off and occasionally fat in the extremities, and generally without solid appendages.
