    The morphology of burrows constructed by the eel goby Taenioides cirratus was studied using resin castings of burrows in situ as well as aquarium observations. Burrows had several openings, one of which was associated with a crateriform mound. The structure of the burrows consisted of the mound, gently sloping interconnected tunnels, and many short cul-de-sac side branches. The presence of the mound suggests that the fish actively process sediment.
