Starfish!

Diet- They eat clams, oysters, coral, fish, and other small animals. They push their stomach out through their mouth (located under the sea star) and digest the prey.
 
Anatomy-  Most sea stars have five arms (or a multiple of five).  Sea stars do not have a brain; they have a simple group of nerve cells that move information around the body. eyes are at the tip of each arm. If a sea star's arm is cut off, it will regrow.

                                                                                           
 
 Interesting fact-   There are over 2,000 diffeent species of starfish, which come in a variety of different colors.
