Biology: this species is nourished, using its tentacles oral flattened, of various organic fragments. It (charges) literally elements of the ground in its oral opening, located at the back of the body. The animal sorts the edible organic substances, and rejects the elements not metabolized such as sand, in the form of roved excrements (Ref. 358). Members of the class Holothuroidea are gonochoric and have only one gonad. Spawning and fertilization are both external and some exhibit brooding.
