East Coast Park shores are becoming richer in marine life! As seagrasses settled on sandy artificial shores.
The sandy shores are teeming with tiny to small Cake sand dollars. There were several families on the shore and the kids found all kinds of interesting marine life.
Knobbly sea star and a Cake sea star that was eating a dead fish! They also found a Peachia anemone that was out of the sand and looked strange to them. I did not see any buried sea cucumbers. Kok Sheng found even more interesting sea stars and marine life.
Thick-edged sand dollars.
Button snails on the shore! A lot more than on our last trip here in the morning in Jul 2015.
Fig snail, Ball moon snail, Lined moon snail, Naked moon snail, Weasel olive snail and Grey bonnet snail.
Spiral melongena and the Gong gong snail. The Lined moon snail in the photo is a burrower.
Jun 2015. But I did get a glimpse of some growing nearer the high shore. There were lush growths of broad Needle seagrass and Spoon seagrass with large leaf blades. I also saw one Haddon's carpet anemone. This video clip shows how the tiny seagrasses hold up in the surging waves.
