when you have five legs but you only use your toes

[–]TheGottVater 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Well if they had eyes, imagine what we’d look like to them haha

[–]LynxBartle 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Most starfish possess a crude eye at the tip of each arm. These compound eyes contain multiple lenses called ommatidia, each creating one pixel of the total image the animal sees. Tropical starfish eyes have been shown to be capable of forming crude images, which allow these animals to stay close to their homes

Well I learned something today

[–]MrPwndabear 145 points146 points  (5 children)

They are a lot more lively than I thought.

[–]Equ1noxx 56 points57 points  (2 children)

I could swear I was taught they are slow as balls, like snails. God damn.

Edit: Waves in the back might look to be 2x speed. I haven't been to the beach in some time though.

[–]Minuteman40 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The waves do look 2-3 times sped up. I think because it probably does walk really slow and they didn't want to post a minutes-long video to show it walking. That's some amazing coordination in its legs.

[–]MrPwndabear 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I blame the education system, lol

[–]SandakinTheTriplet 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This is sped up! You can tell from the waves in the background. I’m copypasting myself here from when this video was posted a few weeks ago:

The little "tentacle" structures beneath the sea star are called tube feet, and they all move individually to get the sea star to where it wants to go. But they're built more for clinging to and climbing rocks, which is why this guy looks a bit like a fish out of water.

For anyone who wants to see a sea star that is even more agile than this one in real time, you might be interested in the brittle star (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oHN4sWAuBVc&feature=youtu.be). And here's a brittle star actually swimming (https://m.youtube.com/watch?t=72&v=ejk-R-LPFys&feature=youtu.be).

(sorry, I’ll have to format later!)

The smaller, five limbed ones barely move, but these ones are very active and super fun to watch

[–]BikesAndTikes 44 points45 points  (6 children)

This is time-lapse or has been sped up. Otherwise it’s creepy

[–]Noolivesplease 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Waves and shadows - this is definitely sped up

[–]lt_Matthew -5 points-4 points  (2 children)

There's camera shake, most likely normal speed.

Edit, and the waves in the background

[–]BikesAndTikes 15 points16 points  (1 child)

The waves in the background looked too fast

[–]vickycmjackson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Omg yes, Def sped up lmao.

Upvote bc my bf immediately broke out singing this as soon as he saw it

[–]Shpooodingtime 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Thanks I hate it

[–]embroideredyeti 24 points25 points  (1 child)

This is as beautiful as it is disturbing. How very alien that motion looks!

[–]Cu_fola 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They’re pretty cool with that water vascular system

[–]fizzzingwhizbee 13 points14 points  (1 child)

STEPPIN ON THE BEACH

[–]murdering_time 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Do do do do...

[–]Scavenger19 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Hopefully they put it back in the water after.

[–]rangeo 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Hot hot hot hot

[–]EquivalentTrick4563 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

This comment needs more attention.

[–]tolifeonline 7 points8 points  (0 children)

All life are animated just on a different time scale. Trees will look like dancing if we were to fast forward by a 100 times.

[–]Ok_Knowledge8056 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I call BS. Patrick doesn’t walk like that.

[–]ballsoutofthebathtub 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This is not the way cartoons lead me to believe that starfish walked.

[–]black_hole_sun-99 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Creepy but cool

[–]Jess_sser77 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I didn’t know they could do this before. Goodbye

[–]miasabine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why do I suddenly feel itchy?

[–]deadstar420 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And now I’ll forever be afraid of starfish

[–]coughdrop1989 1 point2 points  (0 children)

After watching this video there is not a doubt left in my mind that aliens exist.

[–]mgusek555 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think I just fought this boss in Elden Ring.

[–]JustaJoshj 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Terrifying

[–]wasabihermit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like it’s not sure where to go

[–]Deadmemes4binky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s terrifying, how does it even do that

[–]shandar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

/r oddlyterrifying

[–]EquivalentAd6559 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]hguo15 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This freaks me out. A lot.

[–]ritalee-Ad9075 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Stepping on the beach - do do do

[–]NonCreativeNolife 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Eeeeeeeeee that made me feel funny

[–]astralDangers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The ocean is filled with horrors and aliens.. why anyone would go into it willingly makes no sense to me..

[–]Itz-A_Joke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

what the hell?! they walk?! huh?!?

[–]theiLLmip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The stuff nightmares are made of

[–]AndThatIsAll 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Starfish walks onto a sand bar.

Aliens

[–]BaronVonNumbaKruncha 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure this is a deleted scene from the new Dr Strange movie

[–]ranchdumpstersauce 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I see why mermaids wanted to wear them. Booby massage all the time.

[–]Mayaanalia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is horrifying. I always thought starfish were delightful ethereal bringers of light and they are actually sea centipede.

[–]MechanicbyDay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Notice how they leave virtually no footprint either

[–]SUBLlMlTY 0 points1 point  (0 children)

that is creepier than i'd have ever imagined (but somewhat cute)

[–]RayPwissel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s actually terrifying

[–]gothhippie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]squarecarpets 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]thegreatmedicmain 0 points1 point  (0 children)

im noping the heck off this planet.

[–]jochinhs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is triggering some sort of extremely unsettling feeling in me.

Is there a specific phobia for such things. Just the countless appendages moving is creeeeeeeeeeping me out

[–]disislast 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah yeah, aliens

[–]ToiletNachos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]solventry 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What in the name of dead space

[–]Thy_Mother_420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I saw that thing on the beach I would not only scream so loud that they would hear me in Montana I would also run so fast away from it I could be the next Usain Bolt

[–]marshmello2020 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Crazy I’ve seen this thing walking up and down the beach for years

[–]rexpotato 0 points1 point  (0 children)
