Elegant Sea Star

Fromia nodosa

Guardian: Brian Lobo

When you see an unbroken clam shell lying on the beach, what you are often seeing is the remains of a remarkable death.

Sea Stars eat clams, the hydraulic pressure of their feet can separate the shells of a clam and once it is open a little bit, the Sea Stars stomach comes out of its mouth like ‘the blob’, oozes through the gap and digests the inner flesh of the clam.
