Sand Dollars are members of the Echinoderms, such as Sea Stars. You can see the radial similarity in both. Sand Dollars also move along the sand by tube feet, as do Sea Stars. This one and the one behind it, are slightly tipped into the sand to feed. Sometimes they can be seen nearly upright with an edge into the sand, feeding, but they typically locomote while flat on the bottom. This species of sand dollar lives from DELMARVA to Labrador, Canada, but there are many varieties elsewhere.
