Caption: Cushion starfish (Culcita novaeguineae) on the sea floor. Starfish rely on a hydraulic water vascular system that allows them to move in locomotion. They have two stomachs, one is for digestion and the other is extended to consume prey. Starfish feed on shelled molluscs such as oysters and clams.
