A Sun Star from the rocky tide pools. It's a keystone predator in the tide pools. A cool fact about sea stars is they can regenerate themselves if the loose an arm or even half their body! The rocky tide pools were by far the hardest to maneuver through due to the slime covering the rocks. Not to mention the hardest to find invertebrates in, because you first had to move heavy rocks in order to see anything. It was pretty interesting to see how many things could actually hide underneath the rocks
