Starfish, Brittle Purple-Red

Product Description

Product Description

Brittle stars are mainly deposit feeders, scavengers, and plankton feeders; however, they sometimes trap sizable animals. They are capable of moving jerkily but usually cling to the seafloor or to sponges or cnidarians ( e.g., coral). Brittle stars occupy many marine habitats, often at great depths. The most widespread species is the long-armed brittle star ( Amphipholis squamata ), a grayish or bluish species that is strongly luminescent .
