Girl Finds a Sand Dollar That Is Alive And It Is Fascinating

Sand dollars are one of the more fascinating creatures you can find on beaches around the world. Many of us are familiar with the white ones.

They have a leaf like pattern etched on the top, sometimes are stained green with algae, and have a round hole in the centre of the bottom.

But, these, are in fact, dead sand dollars. Living ones are a fuzzy blackish/purple and, as you are about to see in the video, have moving bristles which they use to get around and to eat.
