It was the final day in Apollo Bay. I had found two sea hares the night before so was keen to have a final look around at high tide early in the morning.
I was in luck. Quickly, I found this 11-armed seastar. It wasn’t too bright yet so it just moved around, exploring the rockpool. It was amazing to watch it manoeuvre between plants and around rocks. After about 90 minutes, it moved under a rock to wait until high tide. You can see the videos at the end of the post.
The rest of the post shows the close-up photos I was able to get, especially of the tube feet. A great ending to a great trip.
