Mudskippers in Singapore

Can you see the mudskipper in this image?

Mudskippers live in vertical burrows. Each burrow has two openings. The burrow has a small air pocket. The mudskipper is a very hardy creature. It can survive high levels of hydrogen sulphide and cope with low levels of oxygen.

On your next visit to Sungei Buloh Nature Park see if you can see a mudskipper or two lurking at the water's edge nicely camouflaged against the mud and leaf litter.
