It's CNY Day 3 and we are at the reclaimed shores of Seringat-Kias, which is also connected to Lazarus Island.
Forskal's sidegill slug (Pleurobranchus forskalii) on the seagrass meadow! It's our first time seeing them on this shore.
Knobbly sea stars (Protoreaster nodosus) and was heartened to find a baby individual. Believe more of them are at the deeper ends which were not possible to check out due to murky waters after the rain.
Haeckel's anemone (Actinostephanus haeckeli) which are known to sting very badly. Thank God I didn't come in contact with its tentacles.
Spotted moon snails (Natica gualteriana). As the name suggests, they can be identified through the spots on their body.
Starry flatworm (Pseudobiceros stellae) on this shore. Was nice to see it again.
Common sea stars (Archaster typicus) and that includes the baby versions.
Sundial snail (Architectonica perspectiva)! This beautiful snail produces a detailed pattern of bands and spots and they have rather flattened shells that coil to form a flat disc-shape with a flat base. Interestingly, they feed on the polyps of various types of corals and sea anemones!
Fluted giant clam (Tridacna squamosa)!
