Sea Stars  (Class Asteroidea and Ophiuroidea)

Sea Stars (or starfish) use a hydraulic water vascular system that has many projections called tube feet on the ventral face of the starfish's arms which function in locomotion and aid with feeding.

The star fish usually hunt for shelled animals such as oysters and clams. They have two stomachs. One stomach is used for digestion, and the other stomach can be extended outward to engulf and digest prey allowing the starfish to hunt prey that is much larger than its mouth would otherwise allow. Starfish are able to regenerate lost arms. In some species, a new starfish may be regenerated from a single arm attached to a portion of the central disk.
