A team of us visited the Western part of Pulau Ubin near Outward Bound School. Many thanks to the kind invitation of Alex from OBS, many of us visited this intertidal shore for the first time.
Spiral babylonia snails (Babylonia spirata).
Blue striped hermit crab (Clibanarius longitarsus). This small hermit crab is seen near mangroves, on sandy shores and among seagrasses. Elsewhere, it is found around rivers and mangroves on mud or sand.
Pimple mangrove anemone. The regular rows of large pale protruding bumps on its body column makes the anemone look really handsome.
Plain sand stars (Astropecten indicus) are present on this shore but not many emerged as it was hot and dry.
Crown sea stars (Asterina coronata). They are very well-camouflaged!
Thunder crabs (Myomenippe hardwickii) among the rocks! These crabs are pretty common on our northern shores.
