Caption: Pin-cushion starfish (Culcita novaeguinea). Starfish, also known as sea stars, are a type of marine invertebrate known as an echinoderm. Pin-cushion starfish lack the usual radial symmetry, and are round in shape rather than having the typical arms. The starfish's mouth is on its underside, as are its tube-like feet that it uses to move across the seabed. Starfish can be predators, plant-eaters or scavengers. Photographed in the Andaman Sea, Thailand.
