I didn't know that they swim in schools. Cool!

I have almost always seen them in small schools. four to about 24 per group is common for me to see. I have been looking over my wharf and seen a school suddenly disappear into the sand. they can bury themselves almost instantly.

Do you see the schools very far from the shore? I've only seen a few at beaches, so that could be why I haven't seen them in schools.

those schools are photographed looking down from the remains of my marina wharf. Very close to shore, sometimes only a few feet from the beach.
