    People can be harsh and judgmental sometimes, but not the inhabitants of the sea - oh no! They don’t bother anybody about their looks – all they do is either eat or not eat other creatures. It seems that one starfish, in particular, has been tough enough to survive in the ocean blue long enough to meet humans.

    The 6-armed invertebrate was discovered by scientists off the Galapagos Islands. Researchers are not sure if the starfish is a subspecies or if its extra limb is just the result of a random mutation.
