Physical appearance and biologyEdit
Astraspis looked a little like a large, armour-plated tadpole, though it had a wider, flatter head, with eyes on either side, and a wide mouth at the front.
Behaviour and traitsEdit
Astraspis lived by going along the seabed and eating small food particles.
The Seventh Most Deadly SeaEdit
Nigel Marven finds a dead Astraspis on the beach, and spears it, intending to use it as bait to catch a sea scorpion. It works, and a scorpion takes the dead fish.
