Red Knobbed Sea Star

We just learned about the Magnificent Star.

Another kind of starfish is the Red Knobbed Sea Star, also called the protoreaster lincki, red spine star, or African sea star.

These starfish grow to be about 12 inches, and has bright re tubercles sticking up.
They have gray bodies with red stripes, and a big central disk.

The only place to find these starfish is in the Indian Ocean, in sandy or muddy sea beds.
