The starfish is a beautiful marine animal belonging to the Asteroidea class. It’s also known as a “sea star.” They are found in all of our world’s oceans, from the tropics to subzero polar temperate waters!
Most starfish species have five arms connected to a central circular body, but there are a few with more arms than this! The starfish feeds whenever it has an opportunity, and often times prey on smaller invertebrates. Starfish can live for 10 years or more!
