It was thundery and lightning filled start to the Naked Hermit Crab walk this evening. But after a long wait for safer weather, a small group headed out to check out the mangroves at Pasir Ris.
before we could start the walk, lightning started firing off very close
to us. We hurried to take shelter in the public toilet. Fortunately,
while we waited out the weather, we could do a mini-nature tour even at
the public toilet!

Tree-climbing crabs out on the mudlobster mounds! Can you spot them in this photo? Many of the crabs had already started climbing trees. There were also many Giant mudskippers out and about.
Oriental pied hornbill at Pasir Ris before. Ley Kun has great photos of it and some of the other animals we saw. She'll add them to the post on the Adventures with the Naked Hermit Crabs blog soon.

The Naked Hermit Crabs will be having this walk again on 21 Apr (Sat) and 28 Apr (Sat). Here's more details. Hope to see you at Pasir Ris!
