Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, October 19. 1973 Ask Andy Blennies Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Mimi Moy. age 12. of Liber- tyville. Illinois, for her question: Where does the pike blenny build his tower? Fishes, as we know, cannot survive out of water. They appear to be rather dumb, homeless wanderers who strew numerous eggs in the water and neglect their offspring. However, when it comes to the blennies we can forget this fishy folklore. These little fishes survive for hours out of the water They build homes and defend their families What's more, researchers report that some of these frisky little fishes are smart enough to recognize a few letters. Hundreds of different blenny-type fishes belong to the sea. each one remarkable in his own way. Most of them enjoy life along beaches among tidal pools in cool, warm or tropical seas. The average blenny is less than six inches long and he wears a long spinal fin from his head to his tail He may be striped or decorated with handsome colors or wear a feathery crest on his head The shores are patrolled by- hungry crabs and greedy sea birds, which makes life among the tidal pools very risky But the smart little blennies have remarkable ways to protect themselves. Some have a few scales and some have none, but all of them are covered with thick layers of extra slippery slime. Even if you catch a wriggly little blenny. it's hard to hold onto him However, his first line of defense is to keep out of sight as much as possible. For this reason he usually builds himself some sort of shelter in the sand or among the pebbles. He does this by wriggling his body to shift the sand where he wants it Often he builds himself several little sandy hidewayas. He pops out to find food and darts back into another one The remarkable pike blen- nies have very long pike-type snouts. They enjoy life in the warm waters off Florida and around Cuba Their hideways are rather more elaborate tubes and towers, which they build from sand by wriggling their supple bodies in the usual blenny style.
