This past week I had the chance to go tide pooling for my marine biology class. The only thing that would have made it better was if I didn’t have to actually do school work while I was doing it. However I did find the cutest thing.
Any one else see it?
The Brittle star, a member of the Echinoderm family, is found in many places, one of them being exposed rocky intertidal tide pools. They use their flexible arms to move along the bottom of the sea floor and are very closely related to the sea star. Some of them are even bioluminescent!
Now, go find your own! 🙂
