Of Dwarfs And A Giant.....

Went for an intertidal trip to Pulau Jong today. Tide was not that low but we managed to land safely somehow.

Saw many small/tiny nudibranch/slugs. They are about 0.5cm to about 2cm. Here they are:

Couple of these Sap-sucking Sea Slugs (Elysia sp.) among the seaweeds.

A small Dermatobranchus nudibranch (Dermatobranchus sp.)

A small Phyllidiella nudibranch. Looks like Phyllidiella pustulosa.

A slightly bigger Phyllidiella nudibranch. It's Phyllidiella nigra.

And I saw plenty of Gymnodoris nudibranch among the Seaweeds! Probably there are two different species here.

So much so, I think there's even one on the above Phyllidiella nigra. Can you see it?

Besides these tiny creatures, there's also a Giant.

A Giant Clam that is.

And a closer look at its mantle. Isn't it beautiful?
