After a rainy weekend, here comes Monday which is also the bluey day for many. Grace, my brother and I were at Changi an hour before sunrise to catch the last -0.2m tide that exposes the intertidal flat. And many interesting finds await (which is impossible for me to put all the stuffs, thus picked the nicer and more interesting ones).
[Ria kindly suggested: The sea pencil didn't get stomped I think. There is a stiff inner portion and when the animal retracts into the ground, I think the top part of the body flops over. I see this with other kinds of sea pens as well as the sea pencil.]
This geographical seahare was huge but it had a shell like thing within its body on the left. Is that a parasite or what? Hope it's doing well.
Another of my first is this hairy seahare. They are really hairy and eject purple fluid upon disturbance.
These parakeets are residents of Changi village, adding melody and favour to the rustic place.Today was really a wonderful time.
Thank God again for surprising good weather despite negative forecasts and lightning seen last night. We have seen quite a lot of creatures. Some of which that are not mentioned above are the snails, ball sea cucumbers, sea fans, colonial tunicates, moult of horseshoe crab, crabs of several sorts, cuttlefish bone, mudskipper, zoathids, worms carpet anemones, onchs, hermit crabs etc.
