Semakau Inter-tidal Walk 2008

The new season of Semakau inter-tidal walk is just around the corner. It has been a very enjoyable year for me last year, really can't wait to go back there.
You'll be able to catch the sun-rise,
as well as the sun-set over at Semakau. Below are just some of the many creatures that we saw during the 2007 inter-tidal walk.
We saw this big cushion star (Culcita novaeguineae) about the same time last year. Cushion star usually stays beyond subtidal area. Often seen by divers and it is very unusual and lucky to see them over at the inter-tidal area.
This is one of the many crabs that "armed" with long stalk eyes to look out for dangers. Uca vocans (female)Uca vocans (male)
Uca annulipes
Crab that with spoon shape pincers (Etisus laevimanu)
Atergatis integerrimus

Not forgetting the usual super star of Semakau - Knobbly sea star (Protoreaster nodosus)

A rock star (probably a Cryptasterina Sp.)Sea weed that with a very unique shape (propably a Colpomenia)

Carpet anemone with commensal shrimps

Bulb-tentacle sea anemone with nemo!
A very rare heart shape cockle (Corculum sp.)
Horseshoe crab (Tachypleus gigas) and many more exciting creatures that can be found no where else in Singapore.

Will we be able to find more species this year?... hmmmm I'm so excited.
