The Family Cucumariidae contains small to medium-sized sea cucumbers, characteristically with 10 arborescent (dendritic) tentacles of which the lower (ventral) two are often somewhat smaller. Many are found in deeper water, on soft bottoms and away from coralreefs. They use their tentacles to filter food from the water around them.
