If you’re lucky to live in a place that is close to the ocean and you like to go to the beach, then chances are you’ve noticed these weird creatures called sand dollars.
But I’m guessing not everybody reading this lives by the beach, so let me tell you a few words about what sand dollars are all about. The term is used to refer to species of extremely flattened, burrowing sea urchins belonging to the order Clypeasteroida (you don’t have to remember that name, don’t worry).
Sand dollars are amazing creatures that are in fact alive. That’s not something that it’s easy to guess, considering these peculiars creatures don’t seem to move ever, or display any kind of signs that would indicate they are alive, for that matter.
Well, the woman in the video below managed to capture the moment one of these sand dollars actually moved while she was holding it in her hand – and it’s pretty cool.
So if you want to check that out and also see the differences difference between a live and a dead sand dollar, take a look at this clip. Nature is so awesome, and it’s always nice to learn new things about the natural world that surrounds us.
