Sea Stars

Starfish or sea stars are one of the creatures of the deep, crawling over rocks and sand to get to where they need to be. These creatures sometimes don’t even seem to be alive.

With there hundreds of feet under one of their five legs, these creatures are able to to move in any direction. Not only do these feet help in movement but, they are also used to direct food into the mouth of the sea star which is located in the centre.

One of the coolest things about sea stars is how they are able to reproduce. They can reproduce sexually or asexually. By just cutting off one of the arms of the organism, it will grow into a completely independent and new sea star with the exact same genes.
