sea stars

Mom and I took a long walk at Torrey Pines and there were a lot of these long strands of seaweed washed up.

I think the "root" looks like a placenta. When I bent down to examine this one, I could see what looked like worms wriggling around in it.

I was kinda grossed out until I noticed that they were actually tiny sea stars. Amazing!

Here are a couple of videos I took:

It was a gorgeous day and fantastic walk, thanks mom!
