Mud Lobster in Crab hole

I was back in Pulau Semakau again for a continuation of the plant survey for Project Semakau. It was quite a satisfying trip with a few new sightings of plants not found in the last 2 surveys. But, the highlight of the trip was probably of this mud lobster, Thalassina sp. on the sandy shore.




The upper portion of its claw is much elongated, probably used for digging.



It retreated to a hole made by a ghost crab soon after.
