She Picks Up A Weird Textured Sand Dollar At The Beach. But When She Flips It Over It’s Incredible!

When we go to the beach, we often find flat, white discs, which almost look like they have been painted on the front with a star/flower design.  They are pretty and smooth to the touch, and a nice ornament to bring home and put in a dish or on a shelf.

These disk-like objects are known as “sand dollars”; amazingly these pretty objects were once live organisms in the ocean, that are part of the sea urchin species.  Relatives of Starfish, Sea Urchins and Sea Cucumbers, we rarely see them alive.

To be completely honest, I’ve always thought of them as inanimate objects and have collected them like pretty seashells.  This being said, when I came upon this video below, that is a clip from the “Sea Something” YouTube channel, I was more than a little freaked out when the narrator scooped up a live sand dollar and turned it over.  Watch this footage, and let us know if you’ve ever seen one of these alive.
