There were many hermit crabs, hairy crabs, common rock crabs, anemones, snails and worms. These seemed to be the few things appearing commonly during the survey.
Saw an octopus and pygmy squids during the survey as well. Some of the others spotted brittle stars on the way back too. Towards the reef area, we saw butterfly fish and what looks like a toadfish.
On our way back, we saw a couple of dog-faced water snake (Cerberus rynchops), which is very mildly venomous. Just to side track, I went for a practical at the zoo recently, and our T.A. mentioned how (venomous) snakes usually try to conserve as much as venom as possible because it's precious to them because they rely on it to kill their prey. So they only bite to defend themselves, injecting not too much venom.
Towards the end of the survey, we also saw the Yellow-lipped Sea Krait (Laticauda colubrina) which caused quite alot of excitement! This snake's venom can actually kill but typically, this snake is rather docile, and do not attack humans often. The snake we saw was probably hunting and minding its own business haha.
As you can see, there's algal growth. This particular species of (macro?)algae covered almost the whole portion of the intertidal area we surveyed.
We started off the survey... R. was 'surveying' the ground ahead of us. As you can see, he was already knee deep because of the soft substratum.
The area that we were doing the survey at was nearby the replanted mangroves.
A mangrove propagule I think.
Alsoo, this was the snail commonly found at the intertidal area.
A huge sea cucumber.
Window pane shell.
