Marble Sea Star

Here, a marble sea star is seen searching for food on a section of coral. Most starfish are scavengers, although some will actively search out specific prey. Some of the more aggressive species will feed on coral, crabs, and small mollusks. Marble sea stars can be found in a wide variety of colors. Their name comes from the lighter colored spots on theri arms, which give them a marbled appearance.
