How do star fish survive prolonged exposure to heat in the absence of water?

    Star fish (or sea stars) have a water vascular system that allows them to stay hydrated and respirated even while out of water.  This water vascular system needs to be replenished after a few hours, so star fish left exposed longer than that do not survive.
