How Do Starfish Move?

Answer

Starfish move two basic ways. First, some have the ability to detach themselves from the rock and jump, catching a wave to their new destination. For shorter trips they generally crawl along, using the suckers on their feet to attach themselves to rock as they move along.

Starfish move by using a water vascular system. Water enters the starfish through a large pore in its underbody and is pushed into its tube feet. The bottom portion of the tube feet expand and push the starfish forward.
A starfish has lots of tiny tubes on the bottoms of each ray. These tubes are used to push water in and out of the starfish, propelling through the water. You can find more information here: http://www.kbears.com/ocean/starfish/print.html
