Sungei Buloh Besar runs between the Visitor Centre and the Reserve proper, spanned by the Main Bridge. The area that I visited is between the two stars in this screen shot. Further upstream, from Google Earth, it seems the stream is fed by a series of canals that wind through the agricultural area here.
Among the interesting animals I saw was this little round crab. I think it's the Mound crab (Sarmatium germaini). Poor thing had lost a pincer and was blowing bubbles. There were a few flies hovering around it.
|Unidentified fish no. 1|
Red berry snails (Assiminea sp.) but were larger and with shells that are not so red.
|Mystery snail no. 2|
|Mystery snail no. 3|
|Mystery clam no. 4|
Lokan, and previously known as Polymesoda sp. which I saw at a recent Mega Marine Survey. Dr Tan Koh Siang tells us how you can keep them in a drawer for a month!
|Mystery snails no. 5|
mangrove flatworms (Limnostylochus sp.) gathered in small pools when I arrived at first light. As the day wore on, I saw less of them.
