Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Facultative air-breathing (Ref. 126274); A species that creates elaborate burrows in mud. Its burrows are tunnel-shaped, vertical, and extend to depths of 50-90 cm into the substrate; 4-9 other smaller tunnels radiate from the primary tunnel and connect to the outside. Feeds on a variety of food including bivalves, crustaceans, cephalopods, and small fishes (Ref. 45323). At low tide, this fish is a facultative breather (Ref. 92840).
