Tag Archives: starfish


You may remember that we visited the Kansas City aquarium earlier this year.

They had a bunch of “fin facts” and trivia questions all along the way, and this was one of them.

I’m crossing my fingers y’all.  Crossing them like my mama said my eyes would stay if I sat too close to the TV.

Here’s why…..this is a spicy starfish….

Ever since I laid my eyes on this little lady I knew I had to have her.  Luckily, I am as spoiled as they come and it was cheap so T let me bring it on home.

She was a happy habitant of our tank since about January.

But alas, here she blows today….whomp, whomp, whomp.

 She’s struggling….say a little prayer please.

But I gotta tell ya, this girl is a trooper.  She has been legless for a couple weeks now and she is still hustling all over the tank.  I am calling her my tough cookie, my inspiration, and my teeny survivor.

 I mean, if she can walk around a whole tank with two legs….then I can get up and take a shower today!
