Back to Sentosa for for another day. Really tired cos watching Survivor outlast yest night (best series ever!) ended up slping for 1 h plus...Gee... Plus all those itching from mosquito bites, hard to slp too.
Will do a short entry on animals other than corals since covered most of that yesterday.
A cowrie found by kok sheng. Something new I learnt fr Juanhui's blog is that its nice shiny and smooth shell is due to its mantle covering the whole shell. They feed on algae and seaweeds.
A brown egg crab trying to hide in the rock cervice. Egg crabs are posionous and should not be eaten.
The first time seeing a flounder in Singapore. But a pity its a dead one, entangled in a drift net. Drift nets just entangle everything along its path so dun use it to fish! Just use a fishing rod la. Thats the spirit of the sport too right?
It is also known as flatfish for obvious reasons. The unique thing about flatfishes is that it has its 2 eyes on one side. This helps in locating food since it feeds by ambushing at the sea floor.
