Basket stars are a group of brittle stars, which are related to sea stars (also known as starfish). They generally live in deep sea habitats. Their life span in the wild is up to 35 years. They weigh around 11 lbs, or 5 kg. Like other echinoderms, basket stars lack blood and achieve gas exchange via their water vascular system.
