S is for ... starfish!

Starfish are echinoderms and are related to sea urchins, brittle stars and sea lilies.

Fact: The Crown-of-thorns starfish eats coral, and does a lot of damage to coral reefs. When people first tried to control them, they would catch them, cut them in half and then throw them back into the sea.

What do you think happened then?
