We saw quite a number of lovely sea slugs on our trip to Ubin shore last week!
This Hypselodoris nudibranch (Hypselodoris sp.) found by Ria is probably Hypselodoris infucata. They are usually only found on our northern shores.
Rose nudibranch (Dendrodoris fumata). This slug can be quite common on certain stretches of northern shores such as Pasir Ris, Punggol and Changi. I saw at least 3 or 4 of them on this single trip.
Yellow foot nudibranch (Thordisa villosa) attached to the side of the huge boulder. Think it is my first time seeing it!
Ball tip corallimorphs. When expanded in water, their tentacles will stick out showing the ball-like structures at their tips.
Onyx cowrie (Cypraea onyx) sticking by the side of the rock was busy laying eggs for more baby cowries!
Feather stars (Order Comatulida). I particularly like this feather star with distinct black arms with their ends in white.
Sea fans (Order Gorgonacea)! Though the tide was not extremely low, some of the sea fans were sticking out of the murky waters. Maybe we should visit this shore on a morning super low spring tide to explore the sea fan garden. :)
Cake sea star (Anthenea aspera) was injured! Think it got munched by a predator.
Glass anemone (Doflenia sp.) in the sand can sting quite badly should you touch it.
Here's wishing all a wonderful and fulfilling 2013 to come!
