Basket stars, sometimes referred to as a Shetland Argus, are a taxon of brittle stars. They are treated as a suborder Euryalina or order Euryalida. Many of them have characteristic repeatedly branched arms. They generally live in deep sea habitats. In the wild they may live up to 35 years. They weigh up to 5 kilograms (11 lb). Like other echinoderms, basket stars lack blood and achieve gas exchange via their water vascular system.
 
The basket stars are the largest ophiuroids with Gorgonocephalus stimpsoni measuring up to 70 cm in arm length with a disk diameter of 14 cm.

The Petit Minou lighthouse in Plouzané, France
 
As part of the massive fortification campaign of France under the direction of the Marquis de Vauban, construction on the Fort du Petit Minou bastion was finished in 1697. Two hundred-forty cannons and a formidable moat helped protect a waterway leading to the military port town of Brest, on France’s Brittany coast. The waters offshore are notoriously treacherous, so in 1848, the Phare (or ‘lighthouse’) du Petit Minou was added in front of the fort to aid navigation through the Goulet de Brest straight.
 
The Petit Minou light arrived about a half century too late to witness arguably the most historic event these waters have seen: In January of 1793, the first skirmish between Britain and France in the French Revolutionary Wars took place at the entrance to the straight, an event known as the Childers Incident.
 
 
Both pics are huge. Click for detail.
