Nine-armed Sea Star

Luidia senegalensis

Description:

We saw dozens upon dozens of these washed ashore with the high tide. Many of them were regenerating their legs. Thankfully, the tide took most of them back into the ocean and we threw a few of the ones higher on the beach back into the ocean, as some people seemed temped to take the live ones

Habitat:

Seashell-covered beach on Sanibel Island
