WhyReef - Fun Facts
Unlike most fish, the jeweled blenny has no scales. Instead, it has small feather-like growths on its head. These are called cirri and they help the jeweled blenny blend in with its habitat. Because the cirri make the jeweled blenny look similar to its surroundings, predators have a hard time seeing it.
