what is the adaptations for a blue starfish.
The blue starfish gets its colour from a blue pigment called linckiacyanin and some accessory yellow carotenoids. Depending on the exact ratio and combination of pigments in the star, the colours of the starfish can vary. Although certain colour variations are more common in some areas than others, it is not clear whether there are any behavioural or ecological differences among sea stars that have these different colours.
Starfish have the ability to regenerate, and the ability to use sea water instead of blood in what passes for its circulator system. It also has hundreds of tube feet that help it walk and pry open shells, and the ability to put its stomach on the outside of its body to digest larger prey than could fit inside its body.
