ECHO education intern Caitlin Blake captured a sea star releasing gametes recently at the Champlain Sea exhibit. Gametes are the equivalent of a sperm or egg. When two gametes meet they create new sea stars. In this short video you can notice the gametes as long white strings. The Champlain Sea exhibit allows ECHO to show the animals that one would have encountered 13,000 to 15,000 years ago when Lake Champlain was a salt water sea. Other animals in this exhibit include sea anemones, hermit crabs, horseshoe crabs and sea urchins.
