Clamouring for a prime spot in the window of their exhibit, these spiny starfish are a popular attraction at the Two Oceans Aquarium, and are often the subject of many of the photos in our Flickr group. The spines are surrounded by a circle of tiny white nippers that are used for defence, and to keep the starfish clean.
