The Sea Star, commonly called a Starfish, is a relatively rare stationary creature that can be found in both games.
"The surface of this red starfish is rough, and it sometimes has swollen bumps on its arms; these are actually small parasitic snails inside the arm which live off its bodily fluids.
Turning it upside down reveals small prawns living in the grooves of its arms."
The Sea Star is seen throughout coral reefs, often on the sand near coral-filled or rocky areas.
The Sea Star sits stationary (as they have a tendency to do) under glows. They are sometimes alone, but they can sometimes be seen with small fish, but there is never more than one per zoom-mode location. They like being petted.
- This creature is a relative of the Blue Sea Star.
- Despite this creature's common name (starfish), it is not a star, nor is it a fish. It is actually a member of the Echinodermata phylum, which includes creatures like sand dollars, sea urchins, and sea cucumbers.
- Addressing the fact that this creature is not a star, a star is, to put it very simply, a burning ball of gas floating about in the ever-expanding universe (which this echinoderm is not). However, it does bear a resemblance to the ten-sided and ten-vertexed shape commonly called a star, hence its name.
