I'd finished a meeting at Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve last Saturday (28 Feb 2009) and both my muddy students were there as well to conduct mudskipper observations. Theresa Su (TSLT) came by and feasted on the excellent mee siam provided for the meeting and after that we checked in on the other student, Trina Chua, at the Visitor Centre boardwalk, who was conducting high tide observations. This is one of the mudskippers we were watching and they always bring a grin to our faces, even after a decade of noticing them. We're finally taking a closer look these days.
Feel free to use the image as desktop wallpaper (follow the link to the larger file) and see if your colleagues are familiar with this animal – mudskippers are reasonably well known, judging from audience response at talks. Some might still need convincing that they are fish.
