sea star

Bat starfish (please correct me...thank you)
----
I love nature.
I wanted to keep this when I found this on the beach,
but I was told not to
as it smells bad unless properly treated!
----
This was my first encounter and I was fascinated.
The little spikes (please click to view) are hard and
I wonder how they manage their food.

Interesting - something I've not ever seen.

I've never heard of or seen this, but then, I don't live anywhere near an ocean! You're lucky for that.

This is an amazing creature...! I've not seen one like this just the ther kinds of Star Fish...!

Thank you for your visit....I wish I had some recent pictures of my brother and myself....I have one or two from the 60's, but I don't have anything of us together, after that....The picture of Gordon with my two sisters---now that would have been a great opportunity for the four of us...But I could not be there because of my Health Issues!
we sure were cute when we were little...lol!
