A pool for wayward starfish

We found a little empty cove at low tide on Mt. Desert Island. It is technically part of Acadia National park but no one seems to know about it.
The waves coming in there are a little rough. They tumble the smooth rocks round with a bit of a thundering sound. The starfish seemed to get tumbled up onto the one sandy part of the shore. They looked a bit worse for wear but we managed to find ten and a half of them and put them in a tide pool. I do believe nine and a half survived....okay kidding on the half.

  1. That's ok--if there was a half and it included at least a bit of the center of the starfish, it will regenerate its legs. so if there were two halves somewhere, then there would now be two starfish. cool, right?
