Yes. Surprisingly there are many species of starfish that are poisonous and even deadly to humans. the Crown of Thorns starfish, the sun star starfish, the spiny sun star starfish and the leather star starfish are some of them. The Crown of Thorns starfish is the most poisonous of these causing pain, vomiting and temporary paralysis which could lead to drowning if you are in the water.
