Rotterdam, Tentacle thing

I've always had a soft spot for squids, octopi and all other kinds of cephalopods, so when I saw a large amount of tanks filled with tentacles at the zoo I quickly produced my camera. Unfortunately, most pictures were ruined by reflections in the glass, but this one was quite good.

Stumbled on your blog while looking around blogger and your photos caught my eye. What is that thing? Well, just wanted to say keep taking those photos!

The sign at the tank in the zoo didn't say what kind of animal it was, but after some searching I found it might be a Sunflower sea star. It's a predatory sea star quite common in the pacific.
