Return of common sea star

Photo taken by Ron Yeo on 25 November 2007.

Elated to find out that common sea star (Archaster typicus) has returned to Chek Jawa. They were missing since the mass death early this January.

Read more about Ron's account at his "A Rainy Day at Chek Jawa" post from The Tide Chaser blog.

A little more about these creatures fom Ria's Wildsingapore online Chek Jawa guide page and also at this gallery.

Now for the exciting part, will there be any changes to the huge mussel bed population after the sea star's return?
