|The Giant mudskipper is about 15cm long,|
so the 'snakey' thing was really long!
The busy beast was poking its snout into crevices and energetically zig-zagging up the mudflats as the water rushed in. Crabs were already climbing to higher ground precisely to escape such predators.
Snake eel (Family Ophichthidae) because it has a pair of comically tiny fins. The head is huge but the eyes are tiny and at the front (blue arrows). I've never seen anything like this before!
Berembang (Sonneratia caseolaris). Wild trees are rare and located in difficult places to reach, but these trees are planted at the Park and very easy to view.
Gedabu (Sonneratia ovata) had lots of fruits but no blooming flowers. The Tumu berau (Bruguiera sexangula) was not flowering or fruiting. These trees are rare and were planted in the Park.
Giant mudskippers (Periophthalmodon schlosseri) look very different! Most of those I saw had their 'pajamas' on, broad bars across their body.
tree climbing crabs (Episesarma sp.).
night trip in Mar 2012. Alas, I didn't see any snakes of any kind. The water was rather murky so hopefully the watersnakes are still there and I just couldn't see them.
Pasir Ris Park's mangrove boardwalk is open 24/7! It's easy to access too. The Naked Hermit Crabs sometimes holds free guided walks for families at this mangrove boardwalk.
