Sand Dollar

 

Last night, Thursday 28th May,  I was given a belated wedding anniversary gift - a lovely sand dollar!.

 

"The term sand dollar (or sea cookie or snapper biscuit in New Zealand, or pansy shell in South Africa) refers to species of extremely flattened, burrowing sea urchins belonging to the order Clypeasteroida. Some species within the order, not quite as flat, are known as sea biscuits. Related animals include the sea urchins, sea cucumbers and starfish."
