The Galloping Starfish

Featured Video Play Icon

Starfish won’t win any sprints, but they’re actually quite good at moving around as they hunt for prey. Without brains, starfish are led by their feet, which pull in the direction of food they scent. Each foot is connected to what amounts to an internal hydraulic system within the starfish. With a combination of secreted adhesive and pumping, the starfish can trundle along.
