Hugh's Aquarium Views Video number 12
It looks a campy alien monster out of a 1960s Irwin Allen sci-fi TV show. It’s tentacle-like arms curling in and out to ambush unsuspecting prey. The eerily pulsating membrane of its body announces that its poor victims are being devoured. Yet it’s not science fiction. It’s a creature called a basket star and you can see it in person at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Hugh's Aquarium View Video Number 5
The last guests have left. The doors are closed and the sea lions are bedding down for the night. But before they fall asleep Milo calls out and receives a reply from their Aquarium neighbors, the penguins.
