Still image from Starfish Ecological Communities

Part of "The Living Oceans" series. Captures the lives of sea stars that inhabit sea star gardens on the ocean bottom. Slow-motion photography reveals that predatory sea stars are actually social creatures that respond to one another's touch and prefer to hunt together. Illustrates animal defenses, such as camouflage in the octopus, and shows of aggression in the sarcastic fringehead. NOTE: The captioned DVD has closed captions (decoder needed).
