How to use "Family xenicidae" in context?
Family Xenicidae is a small family, containing just two described species. Both of these species are small, worm-like creatures, with a elongated body and a wide head. The family is currently known from Madagascar, but it is likely that there are more species waiting to be discovered.
Xenicidae is rather fragmented and poorly understood, so a lot is still unknown about these creatures. However, it is thought that these worms have a burrowing lifestyle, living in the soil under the surface. They likely feed on small invertebrates, and currently no obvious predators have been found for them.
