Starfish with red horns, Protoreaster lincki.
Ornamental Object For Aquariophilia Natural Sea Stars.

Provenance: Zanzibar.
Diameter: 22 cm: 8.7 inches.

The red - bumped starfish has a thick, cream - colored body.
Sharp red tubers are more numerous
on the upper arms. These bumps sometimes light up on their
top when rounded. Red lines and dots connect
these tubers forming networks. The underside of the body is red.

They have a hydraulic system that allows them to move and feed themselves. Using their arms, they open bivalve molluscs like mussels, then pull out their stomachs to digest the edible part of the mollusc. Sea urchins and corals are also on the menu. They have remarkable regenerative abilities, an arm piece of an individual can regenerate into a complete starfish. They have asexual reproduction.
Protoreaster lincki lives on sand and seagrass beds. Carnivorous,
she eats sponges, soft corals, anemones, seaweed, phytoplankton and starfish.

Protoreaster nodosus sea stars are rich in asteroaponins. Currently, the effects of certain asteraponins are being studied to
to incorporate them into possible treatments against tumors
cancerous.
