British Columbia's Pacific coast is proving to be home to a remarkable diversity of wildlife. Among the area's standout residents are its 100+ species of "starfish," also known as sea stars. The Leather Star is one of the coast's most visible stars. Despite looking docile and defenceless, sea stars like the Leather Star are superbly adapted for survival: if its body is damaged, a sea star can regenerate one or more of its limbs!
