Shrimp day at Little Sisters' Island

There are two Sister's Islands in Singapore - Big Sister's and Little Sister's. These two islands are now part of the National Parks Board's (Singapore) Marine Park plan, the Sister's Islands Marine Park. At the moment, visitors are allowed on these islands till further notice.

On the second day of the lunar new year, the intertidal team visited the Little Sister's Island. Our last visit was actually three years ago on June 2012. I remembered that was my second trip with the intertidal team and my first visit to Little Sister's Island. You can read about my adventure here.

In today's trip, I saw many shrimp and shrimp-like animals. This shrimp-like animals was the most interesting find for this trip. I am not sure what it is.

In fact, I found plenty of them in a shallow pool near the sea wall. 
So many of them.

Celebrating the year of the sheep at Cyrene Reef

It's the first day of the Lunar New Year and this year is the year of the sheep. It is also another round of intertidal exploring around Singapore.

Before I share about my evening journey on this first day, "Shaun the Sheep", a Costasiella sp. slug from Cyrene Reef would like to wish all readers a Happy Lunar New Year.
