About the LIFE FORMS of sea stars:
Sea stars are invertebrates related to sea urchins, sea cucumbers, and sand dollars, all of which have spiny skin that helps to protect them from predators. Sea stars are saltwater fanatics. Usually, they live for about 10 years, but some can live up to 35 years. They eat clams, snails, or oysters.
