Watching A Starfish Walk Is Simultaneously The Creepiest And Most Hypnotizing Thing On The Internet

There are around 1,500 species of starfish in the world, and they all look a little bit different. The one thing they all seem to have in common is that when they walk, it's certainly a little strange to see.

When they get washed up on shore, they need to make their way back to the water. So they can use the larger star-points to direct and then the little cones come out and propel them forward.

Seriously, these little guys can really move! It's a slow and steady pace that will let them get about 30 centimeters (a little over 11 inches) per minute, which translates to about 60 feet in an hour.

It's even creepier when they have even more legs...

Up close and personal you can really see these individual legs!

Hopefully people would know that they need to go back to the water and someone would help them out after they filmed the video.

Do you find it interesting or creepy to see these little sea creatures walking along?
