kacang-kacang Aegiceras corniculatum @ Pulau Ubin by Shufen


kacang-kacang Aegiceras corniculatum @ Pulau Ubin by Shufen
Originally uploaded by koiyau.

Spotted by Shufen on one of our trips to Ubin, this uncommon mangrove plant

was just beside us when we were looking at mudskippers. Its in a rather

precarious position right now.(right beside a track). A funny story was that

when we saw the propagules, one of us thought its immature, another thought

that it can't be all immature at the same time and clustered together in one

bunch. Guess who was right? Hint: check out the word crytovivipary
