This morning on a 4am trip, I was out with Ron to have a look at Changi shore on a good low tide.
Chromodoris nudibranch (Chromodoris tumulifera) that looks like a cow with its dots on the body. I have been wanting to see this for a long time as my previous sighting was 5 years ago.
Rose nudibranch (Dendrodoris fumata) from far but upon close observation we realized it is not. The closest that we can identify this is Discodoris crawfordi.
Sea apple sea cucumbers (Pseudocolochirus violaceaus) more often along Changi. This psychedelic critter is definitely an eye-candy!
spindle cowries (Family Ovulidae) found attached on the gorgonian. The one on the right side looks different!
Ball flowery soft corals.
Eight-armed sand star (Luidia maculata).
Cake sea stars (Anthenea aspera) are still around and I simply love the assorted patterns and colours they possess in different individuals.
Biscuit sea stars (Goniodiscaster scaber) are the next most common asteroids on the shore.
Jewel box clam (Chama sp.). The shells are thick, with a somewhat round outline but irregularly shaped with short spikes.
Naked moon snails (Sinum sp.). It has a flat shell and the large body is unable to retract into the shell completely when disturbed.
Marbled Sea Snake (Aipysurus eydouxii)! It is both our first time seeing this venomous snake.
