Those things are ALIVE? (I always thought they were just a type of seashell bc of animal crossing)

acfox13 t1_j2552ec wrote

They're very pretty when alive. There are red, purple, and brown ones on the beach near me at low tide. They have tiny little feelers/feet on the bottom that helps them bring sand and food into their center mouth area, and move them along the ocean floor.

Here's a cool little video about them.

You do know all seashells once had a living thing inside, right? Corals are living organisms too

I think they mean like living in like a snail vs living around like an urchin

Liuqmno t1_j283j2t wrote

Maybe, but their phrasing kinda shocked me. I actually know sand dollars thanks to animal crossing too, but learned more about them once I got older. They're actually a type of sea urchin!

It’s really cool when you flip them over and watch their little spines moving in unison. I’d never seen a live one before until I went to San Diego.

That's like flipping a turtle over. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOUR SPECIES?

bigsoftee84 t1_j25m0b3 wrote

We're a complex and curious species. We sometimes do things that cause distress to other creatures out of curiosity, sometimes out of cruelty. Sometimes, we are unable to emphasize with creatures that are so different.

If you think flipping turtles is cruel, wait till you see what we do to each other.

Well no, the sand dollar is doomed once it gets washed to shore, they live in deeper water and only the dead/dying or soon to be are close to shore, at least in my limited SoCal sand dollar experience(and I’ve seen thousands here) there may be species elsewhere that are fine intertidally but the ones here form beds off shore in 8+ feet of water

I was curious as to why it was purple ish. Then I realized it was alive and put it back in the spot I found it. Chill out.

tracker-hunter t1_j2bera5 wrote

I just looked and can see the purplish color. I'm not sure, altho it may have been dehydrating, or suffocating from being out of water. Thank you for noticing and being aware, and being kind to it.

When I was 19 I drove across country from California with my girlfriend. Almost everything was beautiful until we got Oklahoma and then Texas. It just became, "at some point it'll change. It has to."

Then all of a sudden it got really green, there was a big high bridge over an estuary and there were egrets and waterways and...it was changing! I kid you not there was a 🌈. We were genuinely excited. Then like a snap of the finger suddenly it smelled like garbage.

We parked just to stretch our legs. I walked up what looked like a random berm and suddenly the gulf opened up before us. I didn't even know we were by the sea until that moment.

What spread out before us just then was something I've only seen in cinematic future apocalypse scenes.

Oil rigs spread out in the distance, refineries in the far distance to the southwest, and a bathtub ring of discoloration and dead fish at the high tide mark for the entire beach left and right.

Oh, and dudes in 4x4s on the beach driving over the fish, and some kids building sand castles.

James Cameron couldn't have outdone it.

It didn't get better until we got north of Florida.

I even had a night wheny car broke down overnight in Alabama. It must have been a swamp. It was 90 at night and I got THREE HUNDRED MOSQUITO BITES. I counted them.

I don't know why the south fought so hard, but I do know why they needed slaves.

What’s a sand dollar and why is it called a dollar?

10

tracker-hunter t1_j24upng wrote

Sand dollars are named as such, not for their monetary value, yet because of their appearance. The white, bleached-out sand dollar skeletons resemble old americano and Spanish dollar coins, and thus the name was born.

Sand dollars are such filthy animals...every low tide is a low opportunity to draw a sand dong

Due to inflation, these are no longer called Sand Dollars but Sand Quarters.

I will forever be weirded out by the fact sand dollars, starfish and scallops are actual living beings. I mean, I don't know what else they could be, I never thought about it. Their remains were always just a thing to me. Never thought of where they come from.

Then my ignorance was ruined. Ignorance is bliss, people, bliss!

Seeing videos of the little "legs" of starfish and sand dollars moving shudders
