Ophiotrix brittle star on a small soft coral on the seabed. A brittle star is a marine invertebrate that is related to starfish. It has five flexible arms radiating from a central disc-shaped body, which means that unlike starfish it can use its arms to walk on the sea floor. Its mouth is underneath its body. Photographed in the Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
