Heads up fishy friends! In the next couple of weeks, we will be merging this page with that of our parent organization: World Fisheries Trust. You’ll still be able to see what’s happening with Seaquaria Ocean Education plus you’ll have the added benefit of getting a closer look at the other projects we are working on out in the community. Look forward to seeing you there! ... See MoreSee Less
Ever seen a sea star's stomach?? This is a bat star (Patiria miniata) with part of its cardiac stomach on display! Sea stars actually have two stomachs, a cardiac stomach and a pyloric stomach, and they're able to extend the cardiac stomach right out of their body and engulf their prey to begin digesting it! The partially digested food is then brought into the body and passed on to the pyloric stomach, located further away from the mouth. This enables them to eat prey animals that might be too large or unwieldy to pass through their mouth! #seaquaria #marinebiology #oceaneducation #invertebratesofinstagram #seastar #batstar #notastarfish ...
