Basket Stars

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.
