Starfish in our rockpool

Did you know...?

  • Some starfish can turn their stomach out onto their prey. This is how animals digest their food outside of their bodies. When the prey is pre-digested, the starfish pulls the stomach back inside with food pulp.
  • Instead of eyes, starfish have light-sensing cells at the ends of their five arms. With them they can perceive differences in light.
  • Contrary to what many people think, not every type of starfish has five arms: some have significantly more arms and others look more like a ball or a sea urchin.
