The Reproducing Starfish

Starfish on a beach

FACT OF THE DAY:  What happens when you cut a starfish up into pieces? Depending on where it has been cut, the starfish will regenerate itself into a whole new starfish. This applies as long as the cut piece is still attached to part of the original central region. A piece cut off the edge will not be able to regenerate itself.
