Insights from north Australian mangrove ecosystems

Our team were out visiting some mangroves in Australia's northern territory, always fascinating to see the complexity of these ecosystems and the alien looking little animals that live there. From the mudskipper working on its little burrow, the tangled network of roots of the Rhizophora mangroves, the periwinkle munching on the shoots, and the flame backed fiddler crab sifting through the detritus, it's a whole other world down there. Still wondering what the purpose of the colouring on the back of the fiddler crab is, there's a big diversity in colourings in the Tubuca genus, they look like spiders, or bird droppings or all kinds of things from above.
