Frog Snail (Bufonaria sp.)
Chek Jawa, 28th December 2016

There are 2 species of Frog Snail recorded in Singapore waters:

Common Frog Snail (Bufonaria rana)

Near-elegant Frog Snail (Bufonaria perelegans)

Ball Moon Snail (Neverita didyma)
Chek Jawa, 28th December 2016

Barramundi (Lates calcarifer)
Chek Jawa, 7th May 2016

This Barramundi was one of many fishes found dead in a driftnet that was illegally laid across the lagoon at Chek Jawa.

Many of the offshore fish farms in the Straits of Johor raise Barramundi for human consumption, so this individual could have been a farmed fish that managed to escape, instead of being of wild origin.

Indo-Pacific Tarpon (Megalops cyprinoides)
Chek Jawa, 7th May 2016

This Indo-Pacific Tarpon was one of many fishes found dead in a driftnet that was illegally laid across the lagoon at Chek Jawa.
