Hi Derek,

your starfish pictures are really interesting. Maybe this is how the other one lost an arm...?

Best wishes, Timo

Thanks Timo; Most likely the arms were lost from being attacked by other sea stars. As far as I know, Urchins do not eat them. take care, Derek

If the relationship works, we'll have yet another new species for you to discover! ~●≈ ℒ&ℱ ≈●~

Thank you for all your generous comments Renata. If the pairing of these two species is successful, then you should be the one to provide the name. :-) Take care, Derek
