Gentle, cute starfish, it's only true in cartoons. In real life, they can be considered inviolable monsters.
Referring to starfish, people often think of a kind of cute and docile animal.
That's true, but it's in the animated film. In real life, the image of starfish is completely different, even somewhat terrifying.
If each star is considered a limb, then the starfish doesn't have only 5 legs. The truth is that there are more than 2,000 different starfish species, distributed all over the Earth, including the most extreme conditions.
Among them, there are only 5 genera, but also species 10, even 40 genera.
You probably know that lizards are very famous for their ability to shed their tails when caught, right? But it turns out, that ability also exists in starfish.
When stranded, starfish can sacrifice a few feet to create more space to find their way to escape.
It turns out, starfish also have asexual reproduction ability. The limb can grow further, forming a completely new starfish, with the same genome as the original.
From a limb, a starfish star can be born.
Starfish are bone-type animals that lie outside the skin. All over their bodies are covered with extremely sharp spikes, some also carry strong toxicity.
Although she has a cute and gentle appearance, starfish is really a super assassin on the sea floor. Once you fall into sight, with your grim speed, the starfish will not let any prey escape.
Starfish often eat mollusks, oysters, oysters, mussels and snails .
The way of "staring" food of starfish is also very interesting. After capturing the prey, they will start pushing the stomach from inside the body to the outside of the mouth, then slowly enjoy, like monsters in Hollywood horror movies.
You will wonder if starfish have eyes? Yes, on the top of every limb of the starfish, there is an extremely pure eye that can see through the darkness.
With special super powers like that, everyone is sure that the starfish brain must be big in size, right? In contrast, starfish have no brain at all.
They use different senses of the body to sense the movement, light, temperature and composition of the water, to accurately locate the prey.
No brain does not worry about blood loss, no wonder the starfish is an extremely aggressive predator on the ocean floor.
Next time if you meet starfish, be careful. They are truly an inviolable monster that any creature doesn't want to encounter.
