I found a large starfish in the ocean about 4 days ago. I left it out in the sun for 4 days trying to dry it out. It still has the smell and I was wondering what I should do now to preserve it and get rid of the smell?

You should have sprinkled salt over it as soon as you brought it home . This will help it dry out but you better get used to the smell , it never goes away . I think it smells pretty good myself . It brings back memories of the beach when I was a kid . Now I live at the beach and never get to go there , too much work . Rick
