White Feather Starfish

The feather starfish, also known as a crinoid, is found in a wide variety of colors ranging from bright yellow and orange to brown and black. These primitive animals will climb to the tops of the reef at night to feed on microscopic plankton and other small particles of food flowing with the current.
