Background:
Classified as echinoids, Sand Dollars are flat, round marine animals related to sea urchins. They are commonly found in sandy sediments in oceans throughout the world.

Sea Urchins in Geology: Sea urchins are prominent in pre-history with abundant numbers being found in the Devonian and Carboniferous periods. During the Permian sea urchins almost died out but the species again became more diverse through the Jurassic and Cretaceous.
As the species evolve relatively quickly they have become useful to geologists for dating rocks.

Classification: Clypeaster Humilis
