A sea star’s mouth, which is on the underside of its body, has no teeth. When feeding, sea stars wrap their arms around their prey and then push their stomachs out of their mouths to consume their food. If captured by a predator, sea stars have the ability to drop an arm to try to escape. They can then regenerate lost arms and even regenerate an entirely new sea star from a single arm and a portion of the central disc.
