The seagrass meadows on this artificial shore appear as lush as they were when I last saw them on May 2018.
On May 2018, I noticed it expanded greatly since Jul 2017. As before, the species were mostly Needle seagrass (with broad and narrow leaf blades) and Spoon seagrass with large leaf blades.
Orange-striped hermit crabs, some Black-lipped conch. But I saw only one Thorny sea cucumber, Pink warty sea cucumber, Fan clam shell, Window pane shell, one Haddon's carpet anemone. The rest of the team saw a Fig snail and a Grey bonnet snail as well as other interesting creatures.
May 2018. I first noticed in July 2017 that the sand bar appears to have changed in shape, to become shorter and broader, compared to our last survey in Feb 2016.
Ball moon snails, many Weasel olive snails, abundant living Button snails, and abundant small Cake sand dollars. Here's a video of Button snails, the predators that eat them, and what happens after they die.
