"These star-shaped creatures have hundreds of tiny feet attached to their mobile arms. This allows them to slowly walk and open shellfish for food, making them effective predators. If an arm gets caught and ripped off by another predator, the sea star's arm will just grow back. Some sea stars eat by extending their stomachs out of their mouths to trap and then digest prey."

Certonardoa semiregularis has no common (English) name. Its Japanese name is アカヒトデ literally meaning red starfish. Parasitic snails live on the starfish. This species is distributed in south Honshu in Southeast Asia. Most starfish have five arms that radiate from a central disc, but the number varies with the group.
