Even before we began our trip, there's lots to see. Ley Kun has found a pod of the kapok tree! This tree produces fluffy 'wings' to disperse its seeds. The fluff was used in the past to stuff our pillows!
March trip, but when we came back last week it was missing. Pei Yan solved the mysterious case of how the nest came back.
Tree-climbing crabs always leave a big impression on the kids!
Giant mudskippers! These fishes dig out burrows in the mud using just their mouth. Deep in the ground, the mud is whitish. So the fish becomes rather white too.
Buta-buta tree, also known as Blind-your-eye, produces a white sap that can indeed blind your eyes!
Malayan water monitor lizard! It's covered with flies which are busy laying eggs in the carcass. Soon the baby flies (maggots!) will eat up the lizard. Other animals may eat the maggots and flies, and thus nature recycles everything and nothing goes to waste.
Dog faced water snake! There's lots of interesting animals in the mud, and the kids are great at spotting them.
Halfbeaks and even some small Archerfishes!
Wow! This only means that we need to come back again to Pasir Ris!
The Naked Hermit Crabs hope to resume this free evening Pasir Ris boardwalk tours during the June school holidays. We will update the blog when we finalise the dates.
Our next event is the free boardwalk tour at Chek Jawa on 12 May (Sat). Come join us there!
You can also catch up with the Crabs and our nature friends at the awesome Festival of Biodiversity on 26-27 May (Sat-Sun), jam packed with talks, film screening, games, exhibitions. We will be at the marine exhibit with lots of special activities for kids! Hope to see you there!
