Starfish

Did you know that a starfish can drop an arm at will if it needs to? If one is  grabbed by a hungry predator they will drop it off and make their escape, eventually growing a new arm to replace it.

WOW FACT!

Throughout the day we rest the creatures that are in the rockpool. We also make sure that the rockpool is as close to their natural habitat as possible. This helps to keep the creatures calm and happy.
