These starfish just love to stand tall and tiptoe

Zoologist Christopher Mah, who keeps a fascinating blog about marine invertebrates dubbed The Echinoblog, once wrote about the unique behavior of starfish that has them standing tall on all fives to tiptoe as they spawn. It still remains a mystery as to why so many of them do it (some spawn flat) as no studies have been conducted yet. Someone out there has got to know!
