Looking at photos this morning I ran across this one. It reminded me of when I was a child running down the beach looking for shells. We would pick up and save the pretty ones and leave the ones that were plain or broken behind. One in a great while we would come across a starfish. Now that was a real treasure. We would scoop it up an run back to the car to make sure it was same it would be safe. They were quite the find. I ran across a few interesting facts that I thought would be fun to share: *Starfish have no brain. *They have two stomachs - one is a cardiac stomach that helps bring food inside to the pyloric stomach which digests food. *A starfish can product up to a million eggs at a time. *They can change their gender from males to female and back again. All in all they are amazing little sea creatures.

@HazySue I also think that some sea crabs don't have a brain. It's possible after all.

@moonandstars I don't know. Sometimes I think there are people that are walking around without a brain.

I love your photo! Finding starfish is very rare, but when you do, there's nothing better. I taught a science class and covered starfish. The kids always loved that part of the lesson. They are such fascinating and pretty creatures, too.

They have become more scarce. When I was a child it wasn't easy to find one but there were more around than there are now.
