Photographer's Note

Starfish are normally unmistakable with their five arms with rows of tube feet on the underside

Well, this one has six arms though.

Although sea stars live underwater and are commonly called "starfish," they are not fish. They do not have gills, scales, or fins like fish do and they move quite differently from fish. While fish propel themselves with their tails, sea stars have tiny tube feet to help them move along

Sea stars move using hundreds of tube feet, which are located on their underside, and in this picture it was turned downside up after being captured.
