“You must live in the present,
launch yourself on every wave,
find your eternity in each moment.”
-Henry David Thoreau
Starfish are one of the most recognised sea creatures in the world. Because of their unique fingerlike shape and our association of them with the ocean they have become a symbol of happy days at the beach. Many people have fond childhood memories of finding starfish in tidepools or washed up with the tide, including me. Apart from being symbolic to us they have complex life cycles and can reproduce both sexually and asexually. Most can regenerate damaged parts or lost arms and they can shed arms as a means of defence. Ancient fossil records for starfish date back to the Ordovician around 450 million years ago.
