Brittlestar (Ophiura ophiura)

We observed 2 of these starfish in the rockpools at Llangennith. One was next to a rock up on its legs like a spider and out of the water, the other (pictured) only lifted itself briefly and moved only a few cm. There were other more common starfish in the area, however, neither of us had ever seen this type before.
