Did you know that starfish do not swim but rather move by a process known as locomotion?

A video uploaded recently to Twitter gives us a unique opportunity to see a starfish, also known as a sea star, walk along a sandy beach.

Actually, these creatures are not fish but marine animals that belong to the taxonomic family Echinodermata.
