Sunflower Sea Star

339 ratings | 129324 views
When people think of sea stars, they don't typically think of voracious predators scouring the seabed, leaving carnage and fear in their wake, but this may simply be a matter of perspective. To the scallop or clam, this sea star is pure nightmare. This whimsical look at one of the ocean's less known predators may change your perception of sea stars forever. For more unique insights into the ocean realm, watch America's Underwater Treasures, a two-hour episode of the PBS series Jean-Michel Cousteau: Ocean Adventures.
