Common starfish (Asterias rubens) attacking a clam. The starfish has attached its arms to the clam's two shells and is opening them to expose the animal inside. The starfish can then extrude its stomach into the shells to digest the clam within. This starfish is found in coastal waters around Europe. It may reach a diameter of 50 centimetres, although 30 centimetres is more common.
