Starfish, also knowns as sea stars are echinoderms belonging to the class Asteroidea. Though most have five arms Some have more or occasionally less. It is the common five armed variety that gives the starfish its name.

Starfish are seen as pests by Shellfish farmers because they prey on their stock. Cutting them in two and tossing them back in the water does more harm than good, since even a single arm can regenerate a whole starfish as long as it has part of the central ring!

Usually the dried out shells of dead starfish are used decorations in a variety of settings, and are collected by hobbyists but live starfish are sometimes featured in salt water aquariums.

There are many types of starfish, a few of them are featured here, hopefully others will be added in the future.
