Talking Cents About the Sand Dollar

We recently entertained and educated you with a blog describing the echinoderm known as Asteroidea, also known as the starfish, which has been beautifully captured in our custom, handmade art pieces. Well, Getting Nauti suggests that you might find the starfish’s cousin equally fascinating.
