The life of the bluespotted jawfish revolves around its precious burrow. At night it covers the entrance, and every morning rebuilds it. It lines the burrow with pebbles and shells to make sure it is extra-strong. Sometimes, it will even steal parts of other jawfishes’ burrows to improve its own! It spends its days around its burrow because it provides excellent protection from predators.
