Godeffroy's Sea Cucumber (Euapta Godeffroyi)

The Godeffroy's Sea Cucumber (Euapta Godeffroyi) is one of a number of related species of Sea Cucumber that are often found clinging to Barrel Sponges (Xestospongia Testudinaria).
These large sponges are often covered in a layer of algae, which is one of the main food sources of the Godeffroy's Sea Cucumber.
