Philippine Starfish

Hello Friends, while my son was snorkeling  he came across a lot of these little creatures.
I did take a few quick pictures before he put it back in the ocean. 
I think they are Philippine starfish.  I have never
seen these before but the Caymans do 
have a lot of starfish.


Personally, I wouldn't have touched it. It looks a little scary to me not to mention you shouldn't touch anything under the sea~So next time young son... just look...don't touch...and no, we are not taking it home for a pet!

Reminds me of an underwater spider and I doubt that I would touch it, other than to just get it off me LOL

I think I would put that thing on my arm for a few seconds if it meant I could be wherever he is! It looks beautiful! I bet he is having a lot of fun.

Wow! It looks pretty neat, I've never seen anything like it before. Your son was brave (or foolish!) to pick it up.
