Sea Star fun Facts

Sea Stars are not fish. They are Echinoderms and there are over 2,000 different species of sea stars.

Amazingly, sea stars can regenerate lost arms (which takes approximately 1 year to regrow).

They can even regenerate an entirely new sea star from just one arm and a portion of the stars central disc.

Starfish do not have a brain. They also do not have blood like other animals.Instead of blood, sea water circulates through their body with the help of sieve plate.

Starfish mouth is located on the underside of its body. Anus is located on the upper side of the body. Sea stars eat with their stomachs inside-out. 

They have eyes at the end of each of their arms. The eye does not see much detail, but can sense light and dark.

Starfish are not hermaphrodites (animals which have characteristics of both genders) but they are capable of changing the gender whenever they like during their lifetime.

Starfish can survive up to 35 years. Scientists are still not sure if sea stars are in a bad mood in the morning
