HOW IT LIVES
If starfish could talk
they would probably say that they had a good life. They eat good things like
and sea weed, and they have a great view of the
sea. There are many ways for a starfish to move. One way is by pumping sea water
through their bodies into tube feet. When the water is pumped out, the tube feet
grip like suction
pulls itself forward. When something falls off (a body part) it always grows
back. Starfish can eat any thing and walk any way they want. The sea star can do
many different things that we could never do.
There are many different symbols for sea but one of the most common symbol of the sea is the sea star. People say many good and bad things about starfish. Like some one may think that they are cute and fun to play with wile others are afraid of them. There is much to learn about starfish and the sea. But hopefully in the future we will know more.
