NEW: Sea Stars

Imagine having NO brains, NO blood but thousands of feet.

Sounds weird, huh? But that's exactly what starfish have!

Starfish don't have any blood or brains - in fact they don't even have a central nervous system! 

A starfish's stomach digests their food on the outside of their body as they don't have a mouth. They take in all the nutrients and leave the rest. 

A starfish can regenerate their legs if they are injured or chopped off. Including all the thousands of feet they have!
