An intertidal shore walk by Gary and Shane. Maximum depth 200 mm, 24 C water temperature.
After a 3 hour dive in the Mooloolah River I received a phone call from Shane who was walking in the shallow water and found another Hydatina albocinta, off to meet him and see these magnificent animals. There were many white and a couple of purple egg masses and near them were animals deep in the sand or moving over the muddy substrate. The largest animal was over 100 mm in length. Thank you Shane!
