Stomper Lau Lup came across an elusive find as he was strolling along Changi Beach on a lazy Friday afternoon (March 2).
It was a micro shell, about half a centimetre long, hidden along the white sandy shores and debris.
Said the sharp-eyed Lau Lup:
“I placed it cautiously on my palm and took a few photos of it as memorial sake, before placing it back again.
“Later I managed to identify it as a species under the Triporidae family.
“It’s really a jewel of the sea with it glossy and beaded surface.
“This is a family of micro shell under local research. “
What’s even more surprising, said Lau Lup was that the shell he found was a left-handed shell instead of the usual right-handed ones.
Said Lau Lup:
“Maybe this shell might a new record in Singapore!
“I think Singapore is full of diverse species. If we take the time to explore, who knows what we may find in our backyard?”
