The barnacle blenny, ''Acanthemblemaria spinosa'', also known as the tube blenny or spinyhead blenny, is a member of the blenny family native to the Pacific ocean. It has a mottled black, white and red coloration over the entire body, which is rather elongated. As with most blennies, the head of this animal has small hair-like appendages over the eyes, which are large and red. It ranges in size from 0.75 inches to 1.5 inches in length.
