Let’s get to grips with what a fantastic fish I am. The top photograph shows my excellent wedge-shaped body which helps me stay secure in my crevice. I usually sit with just my head poking out from my home so that:
I can see what’s going on – I’m looking for my next meal or keeping an eye out for a predator that wants to eat me!
I can sniff the water for interesting smells with my superb head tentacles and smaller nose tentacles. Is there food nearby or maybe a partner?
I can dart out and bite anything that comes too close with my strong comb-like teeth. (I belong to a group of fish called the combtooth blennies).
I keep the rest of my body tucked safely away.
The other pictures show some other tompot blennies looking out from their homes too!
