Asterias Amurensis

We just learned about the Heliaster Microbrachius.

Another type of starfish is the Asterias Amurensis, also called the Northern Pacific seastar or Japanese common starfish.

This type of starfish can grow to be 50 centimeters, and can be orange, yellow, red or purple.

Where this starfish lives it is called an invasive species, because there are so many of them they hurt the environment.
