Almost all animals living in the sea are predators - from minnows to great white sharks and from starfish to giant squids. Their bodies are designed and engineered to capture prey and to avoid becoming prey themselves. There are "ambush predators" like the scorpionfishes, that disguise themselves cleverly and then wait for unsuspecting prey to wander too close. There are anglerfishes, that dangle "bait" in an attempt to actively lure their prey within striking distance. There are swift predators like the mako shark, as well as "swift enough" predators like the sunflower star - which is just a bit faster than the smaller starfish upon which it preys.
