Serpent Starfish Lost a Leg

Looking at the tank yesterday morning I noticed my serpent star’s leg (dropped a couple days ago) was sitting on the bottom of the tank and appeared to be feeding!  I took a couple videos trying to show the tentacles moving, best when viewed full screen.  The starfish has been in the tank since it was started up 4 years ago, so I am really surprised that he’s still around.  Not sure how good of a scavenger he is as I feed him a piece of shrimp every couple of days (when I feed the zebra eel).

  1. Neato. How long is that tentacle, looks like it’s 3-4 inches. Is the starfish very big?

  2. Yeah I suppose it’s about 4 inches long. He’s roughly a foot across.
