Often found in pairs, the Crab-Eye Gobies (Signigobius biocellatus) are observed to share the same burrow on sandy bottoms near coral rubble or leaf litter. They feed in turn, one sifting a mouthful of sand while the other keeps watch for danger. They confuse predators by flashing their eye spots while swimming in such a way to resemble a sideway walking crab.
