The starfish is what is called a “keystone species” as it has a profound effect on its environment due its diverse diet. They are very important to their ecosystem. Unfortunately, this starfish is dead. The cause to me unknown; it could have been due to the high temperatures of the water or to natural causes. Nearby was a thriving young starfish.
