Did You Know?

All starfish have something called five-point radial symmetry, which gives them their unusual star shape. They are found in every ocean on the planet, and there are over 2,000 species of starfish.

Fun fact: Starfish are not really fish, despite their name! They are actually a type of sea urchin. Sometimes they are known as sea stars.
