Among the reef's most voracious predators, a Crown-Of-Thorns Sea Star, Acanthaster plancii, devours a brain coral, leaving a white, lifeless trail in its wake. Crown-Of-Thorns have few natural enemies, and are covered with venomous spines. Periodic population explosions have caused tremendous reef damage in certain locales. Similan Islands Marine National Park, Thailand, Andaman Sea
