Its Sijie's last installment of the snake hunts and I'm sure not gonna miss a bit of it
Today was only SJ, me and Guy3 because Helen had injured herself...
As usual we went to find snakes that had already eaten for SJ to bring back to the lab.
There was an interesting find though, as SJ caught sight of this jellyfish that got washed ashore. On the previous hunts, the volunteers said they saw jellyfish but we didn't find any.
I also came across another one near the bank. Seems like there's really jellies here
There were lots of Green Chromides (Etroplus suratensis) there too. Its the first time I've seen them so close to the shore.
And the doggy! Beautiful isn't it?
For those who had not experienced the hunt, this is how it looks like when they come up to shore.
One thing I can't grasp is why this species is called dog faced?
Does it look like a dog to you? (say no haha)
And here's the drama of it eating a BIG fish. Beats watching any documentary hands down!
And of course, being a mangrove area, there are other creatures such as this bugger here whom Sijie made very very grumpy.
And as Gaytri requested, here's a pic of her with a baby dog face
