T. praeorbiatalis is distinguished from its close relative, T. laticeps, by a longer snout & the absence of a clearly visible diagonal line in adults. Juveniles exhibit bright yellow on the head. Most specimens in the hobby came from Senga Bay, Malawi. It feeds on insect larvae by digging deep into the sand. It is usually found singly, but often ''followed'' by C. moorii or P. annectens, who dine on edible items exposed by the former's digging. Males construct huge sandcastles as large as 8 feet across.
