Tuesday Video Lunch: Cue Yakety Sax

For this week’s Video Lunch, we bring you the sunflower starfish, a creature that we mentioned briefly in an earlier podfast. This predatory sea star is over a meter across and would be terrifying if it weren’t so slow. Or perhaps it’s slowness is part of what makes it scary. At any rate, speeding up the film doesn’t make them any scarier since it simply evokes images of Benny Hill. However, the video also shows some pretty intense close-ups of a sea urchin’s disturbing little mouth and it’s five self-sharpening teeth. Seriously, five is a creepy number of teeth to have. Enjoy!
