I found the strange mangrove anemone with branched tentacles at Kranji. Hurray!
previous trip to Singapore, Dr Daphne found a strange anemone with a grey body column and branched tentacles, among the very many anemones with a 'flowery mouth' that we see in our mangroves. She is curious to find out more about this anemone.
These are the mangrove anemone with a 'flowery mouth'. There were lots and lots and LOTS of them on the shore today.
moustache anemones. These were mostly attached to something hard, plastic litter, stones and little snails.
Mangrove horseshoe crabs (Carcinoscopius rotundicauda) on the shore! Many were in pairs. I saw about 10 of them in pairs.
red ribbon worm. Ribbon worms are fierce predators!
silt flatworms squirming on the soft silty mud.
Shadow goby (Acentrogobius nebulosus).
I'm looking forward to learning more about these anemones during Dr Daphne's Sea Anemone Workshop which starts tomorrow!
