Luidia_ciliaris

 Price: 8,00 €

The Seven-armed Seastar Luidia ciliaris, is a rare species found in the Mediterranean Sea. It lives in sandy habitats, from shallow littoral waters down to depths beyond 400m. Its diameter exceeds 40cm. If one or more of its seven long arms is severed for any reason, the seastar has the ability to regrow them. This explains why the arms of some seastars are not all of the same length. Seastars feed on shelled animals such as clams.

Hermit Crab (Pagurus sp.) and
Anemone (Calliactis parasitica)
Pagurus

Price: 8,00 €

The Hermit Crab (Pagurus sp.) and Anemone (Calliactis parasitica), live exclusively in empty shells. They have a symbiotic relationship, meaning that they live together helping each other. As the hermit crab moves, it also carries around the shell with the anemones that are attached to it. In this way the anemone collects its food from different areas. In return, the anemone provides the hermit crab with camouflage and protection from its predators, such as octopus and larger crabs.
