Moved on to the seagrass area, it was really tough trying to look for organism amongst the seagrass. Always wary of my next step, never know if I would step onto any stonefish lying in the seagrass area. Was wondering if any ghost pipefish have been spotted amongst the seagrass in Semakau. Would love to spot one! Saw some greenish ascidians on the seagrass along the way.
While walking through the seagrass, spotted a smasher mantis shrimp moving. Both me and S tried to snap pictures of it but everytime we got near it, it started moving away. To make matter worse, it was green in colour, so it was really tough trying to spot it amongst the seagrass. As the name implies, these shrimps use their front pincers to hit their prey till they are immobilised before dragging them back to their burrow.
Moving on from the seagrass area, we headed out to the more sandy area and spotted many Sand-sifting Sea Stars.
Saw a fan shell in the sandy area.
There was also the familiar sighting of the hairy crab. Wonder why they are always in abundance at Semakau.
At the coral rubble, we spotted a Cushion Star! It was my first sighting of it at Semakau!
