Starfish or sea stars, first appeared in the Middle Ordovician period approximately 450 million years ago however the fossil record is some-what sparse as the bodies of dead star fish have a tendency to disintegrate rapidly.

Star fish have diversified into about 1500 species and are found throughout the earths oceans from intertidal zones to the extreme depths of deep abyssal ocean canyons.
