Sand Dollars are invertebrate
having a flat, circular outer shell. Sand Dollars are found
in shallow waters and the brown spines gives the shell a velvety
appearance and enables the animal to move about. Sand dollars
feed by engulfing sand from which they extract plants and animals.
The five teeth of the Sand Dollar are linked to “five doves”
part of religious mythology.

The facts collected to describe
each fish were pulled from various sources over the internet by Sealight Gallery's
staff. Sealight wants to acknowledge that we did not write any of the material
in regard to the descriptions, but we found the information collected fascinating.
We hope that in reprinting it readers will be inspired by it to save and preserve
the ocean and all of her glory.
