The ROPOS ROV has captured many images of basketstars engaged in a variety of behaviors. Gordon Hendler, of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, CA, is particularly interested in the behavior of these echinoderms. These two basketstars (85 m water depth) have their arms spread wide open on the top of this ridge. Image courtesy of Lewis and Clark 2001, NOAA/OER.
