Well I couldn't tell you why he has eyebrows...but for the hand thing (if he's captive breed) then he thinks you might have food for him. Who knows...if your lucky you maybe able to train him a little.

PEACE,
DHS

I can't say for certain why they have "eyebrows", but it is most likely some sort of camofage from predators. Most blennys will perch on rocks when not banging there heads on the rocks scraping algae...it might help them blend in. As for the fingers...your guess is as good as mine...my red lipped blenny will attack my arm when ever I put it in the tank as well.

Man reefrunner, it sounds like you have a red lipped blennie with a bad attitude.
