Beach Walk
Sea Stars

[Sea star drawing] Sea stars are found in inter- & sub-tidal zones. Sea stars usually have 5 arms which are regenerative & will grow back if one is severed. Each arm has hundreds of tube feet used for locomotion & gas exchange. Sea stars are predators & feed on barnacles, mussels & clams. They feed by hunching over prey, forcing the shells apart, & inserting their extrudable belly to dissolve & eat inner parts.
