It is an interesting experience to walk through the tidal pools of the world, but do exercise caution as these tidal pools house a great number of living creatures and organisms and you don’t want to kill them by mistake.
In this instance, I was walking through the tidal pools surrounded by mangrove forests in Havelock Island in the Andamans. It was low tide time and a lot of interesting organisms seemed to be making good use of these six hours.
The mudskippers seemed to be sunbathing after finishing their meal of plankton, algae and insects, while the hermit crabs seemed to be having a field day. They could be seen everywhere.
Even though the ground was soggy, I had to watch out for the fear of stamping these vibrant looking hermit crabs. Traditional crabs could also be seen, though in dark corners and under rocky surfaces.
Other life was also seen in the tidal pool, though am not able to identify them. It is really a surreal experience to walk through the tidal pools of the mangrove forests and play hide and seek with the tidal pool living beings.
