Knock, Knock… Who’s There?
Animal life in the mangroves
Mudsnails and their trails… if you stop and look for a while, you can see them moving very, very slowly. What lives in here? Mud crabs have excellent camouflage.  You can hardly see them except when they suddenly scuttle sideways. Barnacles have taken over! Gulls and other sea birds hunt around in the mangrove forest and shell banks.
In the shallow waters there are thousands of tiny transparent shrimps that you can hardly see… so no photo of these!
Leaf roller insects protect their larvae by wrapping them up.
Bees buzz around collecting pollen from the mangrove flowers.
