Why do starfish legs grow back?

Report as

The reason the legs of starfish grow back when they are cut is because they have growth cells that produce rapidly all over the bodies. These cells are naturally found in the genes of Starfish.

Please tell me some kind of scientist is working on harnessing this ability SOMEHOW? I mean, I know it's a long shot, but some of the things they manage to do, I would've never imagined possible.

All of their legs are important they all have a special part. The starfish losses legs and is allowed to grow back because that's what protects it. Like ladybugs they are allowed to fly away. It's all part of the genes they have inside them.

They have growth cells which means they can reproduce anything they lose,like legs for example.

Simply because their genetics hold regenerative tissue genes.
