The sea star usually has five sections or arms, or multiples of 5, 10, 20, or even 40 arms.
To feed on hard-shelled prey like a clam, the sea star firmly grasps it with its arms until the clam slightly opens its shell. The sea star then pushes its stomach out of its mouth and into the clam and begins to digest its insides. When the clam is digested, the sea star pulls its stomach back inside its own body. The information for such a feeding habit was given to the sea star by its all-knowing Creator.
