The Goldenspot Goby (Fusiogobius aureus) is a little bottom dwelling carnivore, feeding mainly on tiny crustaceans, worms and mollusks.
Gobies, a huge family with more than 45 Genera and over 200 species, are often confused with Blennies. Gobies differ from Blennies in that they have two-part dorsal fins instead of one long dorsal fin like Blennies.
It was shear luck to have this little critter yawn twice in less than a minute. Always keep your camera rolling, you never know what an animal might do next.
