Spotted Sand-Diver Video Stock Footage

Spotted sand-divers reach a maximum length of 22 cm (8.7 in). They have 39 to 41 soft dorsal spines. Males can be distinguished from females by their long dorsal fin rays and larger size. Spotted sand-divers occur in large groups where there are steep sand slopes. They hover above clean sandy substrates and dive into the sand when disturbed. The habitat usually contains some silt. They are normally observed resting on sea bed, leaving substrate to catch zooplankton, or to display. Some species in the genus Trichonotus are protogynous hermaphrodites.
