Stars of the ocean show off at the BioPark. The chocolate chip sea star (Protoreaster nodosus) is named for dark brown tubercles that protect the top of its body. In this photo of the star’s underside, you can see hundreds of tube feet surrounding its mouth. Photo courtesy of Sal Galindo.
Have you slept with the sea stars at one of our overnights?
