Bilateral symmetry is a common feature, yet we come across starfish that has rotational/circular symmetry.

But is there any animal that has no symmetry?

  • $\begingroup$ Starfish are also bilaterally symmetric as larvae and descend from bilateral ancestors. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe the abalone family (Haliotidae), but I don't know whether the animal is symmetrical or life-stages. $\endgroup$
