When I introduced my green starfish, I said that I couldn't find out his name and country of origin. Well, I definitely know where this one resides. This one is from the Alabama Gulf Coast. I'm sure he would migrate to other parts of the United States if the natural conditions which he requires were present. You know, like warm gulf waters. I have heard they might be present on the gulf side of Florida as well as in Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana. I know they are on the Texas coast.
I wonder how many other countries have their own "special" starfish. I think there are probably other American starfish that need to be presented here as well. Maybe some of you have sighted them and have pictures to show us.
I honor of our Memorial Day this weekend, my little friend has been reproduced in size 80 hand dyed thread called "Patriotic" made by Lady Shuttle Maker who is now in Korea. He will be going to live with a dear friend tomorrow. I know she will take better care of him than anyone. She is the most outwardly patriotic person I know and they belong together!
Please let me know if you see any other starfish like this one or in other varieties. In my opinion, the starfish needs greater exposure to the world.
