A great tour for families with the Naked Hermit Crabs yesterday at Pasir Ris mangrove boardwalk!

Thanks to Jeremy for guiding with me, I had a great time as visitors spotted all kinds of amazing animals.


We saw TWO Shore pit vipers, spotted by visitors! Visitors also spotted an ant mimic spider, a moult of preying mantis, kingfishers, squirrel, lots of tree climbing crabs, and Giant mudskippers. And more! Thanks to everyone sharing their photos on the spot too!

The tide was high in the mangroves during our walk, and so we saw interesting animals that we would not have at low tide. Like a swimming monitor lizard. Also a mud crab!

We saw two pairs of horseshoe crabs, moving about in the water. The male clings on top of the female. My first time seeing this!

Thanks to Jeremy for not only spotting great animals but also sharing about them from the handy guidebook that he brought along. Here he is sharing about a colourful parakeet that we saw.

Check out the Naked Hermit Crab blog for their latest monthly free walks for families.

The Pasir Ris mangroves are just 10 minutes from Pasir Ris MRT and just next to DownTown East. It has educational and interesting panels so you can explore it on your own. It is the only mangrove boardwalk that is open 24/7. A night trip to here can be quite amazing. And here's more about why Pair Ris mangroves are so awesome.
