Sea Star/ Starfish

sea star

Name: Sea Star
Phylum: Echinodermata
Class: Asteroidea
Order:-
Family:-

Location found: Columbia zoo
Behavior: this echinoderm was stuck against the glass of the tank. I like this picture because you can really appreciate the oral surface (anterior part of the “star”). You can see the mouth and the suckers that attaches them to substrates and their food.
