YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT WAS FOUND CRAWLING AROUND 1 TEXAS BEACH
A woman visiting Port Aransas stumbled upon the most massive starfish she had ever seen.
MASSIVE STARFISH CRAWLING AROUND
Christina Biery was enjoying her time on the beach at Port Aransas when something caught her eye. An incredibly large starfish had washed up on the beach and was crawling right in front of her.
The starfish has been identified by Mark Fisher, science director for the Coast Fisheries Division of Texas Parks and Wildlife, as a starfish species as a gray sea star (Luidia chlarata).
According to Fisher, this species can grow up to 12 inches in diameter. This particular starfish washed up on the Texas coast is on the quite larger side. Biery posted photos and videos online that immediately caught the attention of people from all over.
CRAWLING AROUND OF ITS MANY FEET
The video shows a close look at the starfish using its many tubular feet to crawl around.
The starfish slowly moves in the sand as waves crash onto it. According to Biery, she discovered multiple starfish that day. Some people who commented on her video felt bad for the washed-up starfish. One person commented, "Threw one back out the other day. Poor babies."
Biery said she had helped out the massive starfish, along with others, "I put 8/10 back in tide was low."
