CreatureCast: Getting Around When You Are Round

Henry Astley explains how brittlestars move. In the first year of his thesis research at Brown, Henry closely observed brittlestars over the course of a week at South Water Caye in Belize. The paper describing his findings, titled "Getting around when you’re round: quantitative analysis of the locomotion of the blunt-spined brittle star, Ophiocoma echinata", was published in the Journal of Experimental Biology.
