Starfish…

Starfish are very interesting. They belong to the Asteroidea Class.

This one is a Cushion Starfish Patiriella regularis.

Identification is by the pair of white spots. Starfish have many small tube feet; mini suction cups that the starfish uses to move. You can see them in the picture below:

Some Starfish like this one live in intertidal rockpools.
