Thelenota ananas, also known as pineapple sea cucumber or prickly redfish, is a species of sea cucumber found in tropical waters from the Red Sea to New Caledonia. Its reddish-brown body with large and mostly branched papillae can reach up to 70 centimetres (28 in) in length. Due to intense commercially exploitation population of T. ananas declined by 80-90% in at least 50% of its range and it is listed as endangered by IUCN.
