It's the school holidays! As usual, we have a huge turnout of visitors for the monthly free tour of the Chek Jawa boardwalk with the Naked Hermit Crabs.
Mama Crab Ley Kun starts us off with a quick introduction. She reminds that the Naked Hermit Crabs are soon going to celebrate our 10th anniversary of doing these free monthly walks!
Jejawi fig. When the fig tree fruits, lots of birds, squirrels, monkeys and other animals gather to feed. The tower makes it easier for us to view this spectacle.
Nipah palms, the source of our favourite attap chee and many other wondrous food.
Malayan water monitor lizard hiding in a hollow log.
Giant mudskipper with 'longan-seed eyes'. It is next to the swimming pool that it has build with only its mouth to dig up the sand.
Seashore nutmeg is fruiting profusely. This Critically Endangered tree is still abundant at Chek Jawa.
Thanks to Mohammad Juhari for this selfie of Mama Ley Kun, Ian and Ethan and me.
