FEATHER STAR (Crinoidea)
Biodiversity > Marine Life > Echinoderm > Feather star

Feather stars (Class Crinoidea) look a little like small seastars with numerous branched feathery arms that are held upwards. Many feather stars hide under rocks during the day and emerge to feed at night, extending the fan-like arrangement of arms to gather food drifting past in the water currents.
