It lives on the sandy or gravelly bottoms of shallow water areas and seagrass meadows at depths down to about 36 metres
Being a detritivore, it uses its tube feet to move around and scoops sand, mud and debris into its mouth with its oral tentacles. Having processed this material in its gut, it voids the remains, leaving a characteristic trail of sand on the seabed
