What are Starfish?
Starfish live in the ocean, on the sea floor. While some live in deep water, others in shallow water.
They have five or more arms and can be quite large. The Sunflower sea star (Pycnopodia helianthoides) is the largest: fully grown, its arm-span is about a metre. This is a bit larger than the famous Crown of thorns starfish, which lives on coral polyps.
Although starfish are invertebrates, they do have a kind of skeleton. The bodies of starfish are composed of calcium carbonate plates, known as ‘ossicles’. These form the endoskeleton, which takes on a variety of forms such as spines and granules.
They have a primitive nervous system, but not a brain. They also do not have blood, instead they use sea water to pump things around their bodies.
There are over 1500 different species of sea star. Most sea stars are predators. They eat mussels, clams and other bivalves. Occasionally, they catch small fish.
