today i wanna talk about crown of thorns starfish, they are so cool-looking and they're Big Boys!
these are the second largest starfish in the world, capable of reaching a diameter of 13 inches!! they can also grow over 20 arms if i recall correctly!
they are partly responsible for the destruction of the great barrier reef because they're eating the coral quicker than it can grow back, but don't get mad at them! this is a man-made issue (overfishing and sewage dumping)
I DUNNO WHAT THIS TELLONYM THINGY IS BUT I SAW IT AND IT LOOKS FUN! https://tellonym.me/NauticalNeighbour there I am!
