The Common Starfish or Asterias rubens, as its name implies exists in colossal numbers around Britain. Countless thousands are sometimes cast ashore after winter storms. Here one is shown feeding on the eggs of a Little Cuttle (Sepiola atlantica).. Common Starfish will also readily feed on any form of carrion. See separate picture of this starfish opening a Razor Shell.
