Ecology

Inhabits the sandy bottom of the sea. It burrows into the sand for a while, sticks out its eyes and tail, and stays still. It swims by flapping its pectoral fins and eats small benthic animals such as shellfish and crustaceans.

Habitat

Miura Peninsula Arasaki

I found it at the rocky bottom where I always watch it. It was a rather small individual, covered with sand and sitting still. When I was observing, it began to swim with its pectoral fins fluttering.
