How does a starfish protect itself?

Answer

Starfish have bony skin which is calcified and this protects them from predators. They also camouflage themselves with their colors that may also scare off any potential attackers.

Starfish are made of bony calcified outer shells helping to protect them from hungry predators. Their bright colors also offer some protection by scaring off their enemies. In addition if a starfish does lose a limb to a predator the starfish can grow the limb back.
