Family Caudinidae

The Family Caudinidae contains small to medium sausage-shaped sea cucumbers with a thin body wall and lacking tube feet. These sluggish animals burrow in soft sediments and have the often attenuated caudal region extended to the surface, presumably for respiration for they possess respiratory trees.
