Description

Also known as Crabeye, Crabeye Goby, Crab-eyed Goby, Four-eyed Goby, Gudgeon, Sand Goby, Twinspot Goby, Two Crabeye Goby, Twospot Goby, 4-Wheel Drive Goby.

Found singly or in pairs close to their burrows sifting through sand with their mouths looking for food, around coral, leaf litter and rubble over silty bottoms of coastal bays and lagoons.
They feed on tiny invertebrates.
Length - 10cm
Depth - 1-30m
Widespread Western Pacific

These Gobies feed by taking a mouthful of sand that is filtered through the gills for tiny creatures.
They make large homes on sandy areas below rocks, with a small entrance that is covered over at night, when predators are near these Gobies dive into the sand and swim through the sand to escape danger. Ref: https://www.fishbase.se/summary/7245
