जीवविज्ञान     शब्द संग्रह (उदाहरणार्थ epibenthic)

Usually occur over sand patches close to reefs with kelp, feeding on mysids and other crustaceans. Ovoviviparous (Ref. 205). The male carries the eggs in a brood pouch which is found under the tail (Ref. 205). One of the most spectacular examples of camouflage: neither prey nor predators recognize it as a fish.

About 250 eggs are incubated by males on the underside of the tail, where they are embedded in spongy tissue (Ref. 31838).
