Jawfish (Opistognathidae) peering out of its burrow, emerging to eat before retreating. Jawfish are small slender fish that excavate a burrow by digging out sand with their mouths. They then reside half in the burrow, and feed on plankton and other small animals that pass by. At the first sign of danger they retreat entirely into the burrow. Filmed in Anilao, Mabini, The Philippines.
