Nature at its finest can be a thing of beauty. Here's pictures of the bloody carnage that results.

Hungry starfish eating an Octopus

I thought it would have been the other way around and this poor octopus would be eating the Starfish but the caption that comes the photo reads:

"her job of guarding her eggs is finished; her emaciated body is devoured by a swarm of sunstars".

So the circle of life in action on the sea floor:

Tastes like fish?

Sunstars, starfish, it makes for an unexpected picture.

Look at that eye staring at you.

 Is it a look of 'laying back, thinking of England'? It actually looks like a dead eye, I suspect the ocotpus died a natural death and then the Starfish have scavenged it for a meal.

What else do Starfish eat? Cockle anyone?

Here's a star fish in captivity thats been fed.

And just to cap off, this starfish  caught himself a fish! His chips got soggy however...
