Description

Not a great photo, but do you think this is one light-colored P. ochraceus and one P. giganteus? The guide called the top one a "pink sea star" but I don't think he meant P. brevispinus - just that it was pinkish in color. The star-shaped group of spines at the center make me think P. ochraceus. Any thoughts?

Description

There were some HUGE sea stars in this harbor. I think this is a Giant sea star (P. giganteus) just by its size, but don't see the blue circles. It would be my first observation of this species. What do you think?
