Junior Editor Quli on. FISH QUESTION: Does e «terflth have eyes? Hew else could he find the animals en which he feeds? ANSWER: Starfish belong te a very ancient and primitive K up of animals called "echinodermt," fated by scientists es or than mellusks (such as clams and snails) but higher than worms. These simple creatures do not possess well developed sense organs of higher animals. They don't have real eyes, even if there is e tiny spot on the tip of each arm which is sensitive to light. Probably these sensitive arm tips help • starfish to crawl away from light, which it doesn> like. Starfish eat bivalves such as oysters and clams. Having located one of these, the star wraps his arms around and gets a grip with the little "tube feet" or suckers he can push out from underneath. The clam or oyster will resist for awhile but at last must open its shell. Then the starfish pushes out his' stomach through a kind of mouth where the rays join and gets in. between the shells where he digests the soft part of the mollusk. Starfish locete their food, not with their "eye spots," but by a mysterious chemical reaction to an outside stimulus. Many of the more primitive animals Instinctively turn toward food and away from danger. FOR YOU TO DO: Look up starfish the next time you are In e natural history museum. There are many weird varieties, some with arms 24 inches long. (Carolyn Ann Paulik of Youngstown, Ohio, wins $10 for this S iestion.
