The Stargazer is an ambush predator that hunts at night.  It buries itself in the sandy bottom, creating a shallow depression with only its "face" exposed.  The fish will remain completely motionless -- a fixture in the bottom.  Until an edible-size fish seeks refuge in its sandy depression.  Then: Meal time.  The Stargazer is normally seen in the sandy bottom at night.
