I was pretty excited when I spotted this striking blue starfish (linckia laevigata) while beach coming during the low tide in Siquijor, and cajoled this pretty beachcomber to pose for me with the starfish, also known as the Comet Sea Star, Blue Sea Star, or Blue Linckia Sea Star. It is found in the sunny areas of the reef and reef fringe, constantly foraging for food. In the wild, the Blue Starfish is capable of regenerating a new starfish from almost any portion of its body that might break off.
