Tangled tendrils - Jenny Ough

Tangled tendrils clinging to the moonscape!
This basket star has a tight grip on a sponge and was found in a small cave on the reef. Nocturnal creatures that open up like a satellite dish at night, by day they cling to sponges or the reef, displaying the intricate pattern and beautiful texture of their feeding arms.
