Lives in clear, flowing waters. Often forms aggregations
around log snags or in deeper rock pools. Also occurs
in sandy bottoms around the cover of woody debris
and in flooded lagoons. Solitary. Diet:
Feeds on aquatic insects, mollusks, prawns and bottom
detritus. Feeds by thrusting its snout into the sandy
bottom. Reproduction: Nothing specific
is known about the breeding biology, but it probably
spawns early in the wet season. The first two thumbnail
specimens were photographed at a Wildlife park by
the image contributor and originated from the Dalry
Endemic to Australia. Glencoe, Northern Territory
and coastal drainage.
