I saw this Crown of Thorns starfish while SCUBA diving off the island of Oahu last week. These are destroying coral reefs in Australia because they are experiencing a population boom, and they love to eat coral. According to the locals in Hawaii, the population there seems under control, so the reefs are not threatened by these amazing creatures.
