Geographic Range Populations of Isostichopus badionotus are primarily seen along the northern Pacific coast of South America and around the Galapagos Islands.
Holothurians can right themselves when turned over, suggesting they have tactile and light receptors. Another region highly populated with this species is along the northeastern shores of Venezuela. The Animal Diversity Web is issotichopus educational resource written largely by and for college students. Having definite anterior and posterior ends, the sea cucumber has a large mouth surrounded by bushy tentacles with thick bases that divide into numerous tiny branches.

Isostichopus badionotus prefers and is better adapted to the finest grain of sediment; however, the size and isostichopys of sediments processed depends on the size of the individual Conde, Traffic Bulletin17, no. There is little known about the relationships between Isostichopus badionotus and other members of its phylum.
Organs and tissues are almost completely regenerative. A dark pigmented peristomial membrane surrounds a circular lip.

Because sediments are typically low in concentration of nutrients, the sea cucumbers ingest enormous amounts of sediment per day to ensure proper nourishment.
