Man captures footage of a 'walking' starfish

Posted on Monday, 9 October, 2017 | Comment icon 13 comments

The starfish seemed to have somewhere it needed to go. Image Credit: YouTube / Zeb Hallock
Zeb Hallock managed to record the star-shaped echinoderm ambling along a beach in North Carolina.
While most people who have ever been to the seaside will have seen a starfish there at one time or another, to see one actively crawling around on the sand out of water is a spectacle that very few will have ever been fortunate enough to witness first-hand.

"It was early evening, probably around 6pm or so at low tide," wrote Hallock.

"We noticed there were starfish walking around on the sand near the water. Some were in tide pools but some were just strolling on the sand, very very very slowly."

"The ones that were on the sand we carefully relocated back to the ocean or a tide pool."

"Other people coming out to the beach were fascinated by the large amount of starfish and helped relocate the walkers to the water as well."

Agreed, reminds me of a movie with a starfish like alien. Unfortunate because I didn't like the movie.

Very cool! A half-hour drive away from my house I can visit a fish-store which have many starfishes but I've never seen their cilia so long nor one so active.
