Basket Star GALLERYEcheneis naucrates
Since basket stars are night suspension feeders (wait for bits of food that float by suspended in the water), they curl up and stay dormant during the day
hiding in rock crevasses. They are generally a
orangey-brown color, although black ones have been
found also, and when fully extended can reach a foot
and a half in diameter.
