A pair of bouncy kids are a highlight of today's Chek Jawa tour with the Naked Hermit Crabs!
Today I had the pleasure of guiding the See family with their precocious kids, and the Lee family with grandma and grandpa. The young ones are bouncing with energy. Checking out every part of Chek Jawa! There's a tree in the well, she says. And yes indeed, there are plants growing on the sides of the wall!
nipah palms and try to find some of the many interesting little creatures that live here.
colourful fiddler crabs! Also some other larger crabs. But the back mangroves were very dry today so we didn't see many other animals. Fortunately, this also meant less mosquitoes.

Gold-spotted mudskippers, several large hermit crabs. In deeper water, Ivan alerted us to a school of mullets.
