Bennett’s feather star, Oxycomanthus bennetti
2013-08-04 08:28:29

Bennett's feather star is a suspension feeder that grows to be about 1 foot with 31-120 arms extending upward from the body. The star catches the food, usually phytoplankton and zooplankton, with tubed feet located on the outside of the arms. Yellow, Brown, Green and Purple are the most common colors for the Bennett's feather star. The star will remain attached to the seabed by a stalk until it reaches maturity and then becomes free-living by breaking off from the stalk. The Bennett's...

Credit: Rpillon/Wikipedia (CC BY-SA 3.0) The black sea cucumber (Holothuria forskali), also known as the cotton-spinner, is a species that can be found in the Mediterranean Sea and eastern areas of the Atlantic Ocean. Its range includes the waters around the Azores and the Canary Islands. It prefers to reside in shallow waters at depths of up to 164 feet and can be found on rocky, vertical surfaces. In 1969, Rowe classified it within...
