Though Lazarus Island has been joined with St John's Island and Seringat, much of the island remains untouched. The side facing St John's Island is real rocky. In fact it is a natural form of foot reflexology. Haha! We went around the entire island during low tide to see how's the shores of Lazarus doing.
This giant clam is also known as the Burrowing Giant Clam (Tridacna crocea). Many thanks to Rene for sharing the location.
Fluted giant clam (Tridacna squamosa) which is different in terms of species as compared to the previous one. The two-part shell of the Fluted giant clam has 5-6 rows of deep open flutes on the valves.
Very long anemone (Actinoporus elongatus). If this is indeed elongatus, the body column may be as long as 50cm!
Haddon's carpet anemones (Stichodactyla haddoni) and Garlic bread sea cucumbers (Holothuria scabra).
Ornate leaf slug (Elysia ornata) that is believed to feed on the Hairy green seaweed (Bryopsis sp.).
Long-spined black sea urchins (Diadema setosum are still there!
Red feather stars (Himerometra robustipinna) are often hidden from our sight at Lazarus but they are abundant at the deeper ends where we don't usually look.
Cryptic sea stars (Cryptasterina sp.) are still there. I'm glad they are. These sea stars are not commonly found on our rocky shores
Tape seagrass (Enhalus acoroides) near the bridge connecting Lazarus and St John's.
