The Burrowing Goby or Naked Goby (Croilia mossambica) is a species of fish in the Gobiidae family. Its genus Croilia is monotypic.

It is found in Mozambique and South Africa. This species has a very limited distribution and is becoming rare due to coastal development, pollution, and siltation of estuaries caused by soil erosion from further inland.
