Patiria miniata (Bat star starfish, m_02_andy) (Pmin_3.0)

About Patiria miniata

Patiria miniata, the bat star (Patiria miniata), sea bat, webbed star, or broad-disk star, is a species of sea star in the family Asterinidae. It typically has five arms, with the center disk of the animal being much wider than the stubby arms are in length. Although the bat star usually has five arms, it sometimes has as many as nine. Bat stars occur in many colors, including green, purple, red, orange, yellow and brown, either mottled or solid. The bat star gets its name from the webbing between its arms, which is said to resemble a bat's wings.
