Answer:

Radial symmetry can aide in survival for animals.

Explanation:

There are two benefits to being radially symmetrical:
(1) Being omnidirectional - you can move in any direction.
(2) Aids survival - if a body part is lost, other can compensate. E.g. starfish are radially symmetrical. If a leg is torn off, the starfish can still survive in it's environment.
