Memorial Day- Echinoderm Videos!

So..its Memorial Day, a holiday in the United States. When I was in high school and the teacher had an odd day when no learning was possible he or she would just show an educational movie. So, that's what I'm doing here. Enjoy these weird echinoderm videos courtesy of Youtube and NOAA!

Here is a link to video of the deep-sea swimming sea cucumber from the Tropical Atlantic.

And here are some other fun things:

Sand Dollar (Dendraster excentricus) Time Lapse!

Tropical Holothurian Time Lapse feeding

Crinoid Swimming!

Those are very cool! I did not know that sand dollars could walk. And that thingy that kept licking its fingers... very odd.
