A Musical Ode to Starfish

Sally Le Page sings the most scientifically-literate song about starfish you’ll ever hear:

When was the last time you heard a song with lyrics like these?

Hey, like all the vertebrates you can name us
They started off with an anus
As a little embryo
‘Cos we’re all deuterostomes

But unlike their vertebrate brothers
Their legs grow back with no problem
And several can from just one hand
Make a body fresh and new
