3l) are predators of small fish in the littoral of tropical seas, most often seen above sea grass beds or sandy patches between coral reefs. They seem to have two tails; the first one is formed by a dorsal and anal fin, and the second one is the real tail. Beyond the tail is a long, thin caudal filament. , personal observations). It looks as though the double–tail fin configuration with the trailing filament serves to allow fast acceleration without recoil movements of the head. Precise kinematic measurements are needed to provide evidence for this assumption.
