How Sea Stars Move

The Ark in Space has the weirdest video clip of sea stars you'll see today. Ever wonder how they move? It's suprisingly creepy (pun intended)

This is a great piece of time lapse photography, showing a sea star (or star fish as we call them in the UK) slowly crawling across Mora Beach, Olympic Peninsula, Washington.

It is only when you watch one of these remarkable creatures in slow motion that you realize just how alien they are – to us at least. It really does look like something out of a science fiction film!

The educated US citizens call them sea stars. We also don't refer to time-lapse video as slow motion. You bloggers are making all of us dumber.
