Brittle stars occur in all the world's oceans from the deep sea to intertidal zones, and including salt and brackish polar areas, temperate, and tropical waters.
The region with the highest species richness of brittle stars is the Indo-Pacific region with species at all depths. The Arctic has the lowest number of species: Brittle stars (Ophiuroidea) are a group of echinoderms that resemble starfish.
There are about species of brittle stars alive today and most species inhabit marine habitats with depths greater than feet. There are a few species of shallow water brittle stars. These species live in the sand or mud just below the low tide : Laura Klappenbach. Brittle stars or ophiuroids are echinoderms in the class Ophiuroidea closely related to crawl across the sea floor using their flexible arms for locomotion.
The ophiuroids generally have five long, slender, whip-like arms which may reach up to 60 cm (24 in) in length on the largest m: Animalia. "Brittle Stars " was the first of Lichen's "Uncommon Field Guide" series I discovered. They are all uncommonly delightful to poke into.
One can read them chapter-by-chapter or just open the book anywhere and delve in. I picked up this one to add to my school's marine biology collection. After scanning it, I bought a second copy for myself/5(8).

I have a distinct central disc and five skinny, flexible arms. My central disk is made up of a skeleton of calcium carbonate and contains all my internal organs. Since tackling every ocean species worldwide is a monumental task, O’Hara and his team focused on the humble brittle stars, collecting historical records from 1, oceanic expeditions spanning.
Brittle stars are good animals for scavenging leftovers and cleaning up the aquarium, especially in hard to reach areas. They mostly feed on dead organic material, however, some large species will even feed on feed on bivalves (e.g., clams, oysters.

Habitat. Today, brittle stars are almost omnipresent in the world’s oceans. They are found in virtually all habitats, from the intertidal zone down to depths of more t feet (7, m). In coral reefs and adjacent habitats, they are often found in large densities, for example in sediments or the intertidal zone.
Brittle star Brittle stars are starfish-like echinoderms (phylum Echinodermata, class Ophiuroidea), whose star-shaped bodies are radially symmetrical and are supported by a hard endoskeleton made of calcium salts.

However, brittle stars are also common members of reef communities, where they hide under rocks and even within other living organisms. Generally, brittle stars live Kingdom: Animalia. This list of prehistoric brittle stars is an attempt to create a comprehensive listing of all genera from the fossil record that have ever been considered to be ophiuroids, excluding purely vernacular list includes all commonly accepted genera, but also genera that are now considered invalid, doubtful (nomina dubia), or were not formally published (nomina nuda), as.
