Even before we began the walk, we had a treat. A flying lizard was spotted on a tree near the meeting point. By not getting too close, we managed to observe it for some time. Sean shares a video of the lizard gobbling ants, on facebook.
guide to Singapore's ladybird beetles. There were many Red ants all along the boardwalk and they were carrying all kinds of prey. Alyce shared how she ate a seasoning made of these ants. But we couldn't bring ourselves to kill an ant to see how it tastes. Sean also spotted a cute green critter, and a mama spider with her spiderlings.

Pasir Ris mangroves are special not only because there are so many awesome creatures to discover here, but also because it is the only mangrove boardwalk that is open 24/7. A night trip to here can be quite amazing.
The next FREE Naked Hermit Crab walk is at Chek Jawa! More details here.
