Crinoidea Plush

"The gravel driveway of my grandparents' house is full of crinoid stem fossils - as a child it was thrilling to find such neat fossils so easily.

Crinoids, also known as sea lilies or feather stars, are echinoderms related to starfish and sea urchins. They originated in the Ordovician, and still exist today.

Would be a great decorative pillow or plush for a paleontologist or fossil enthusiast!


Kingdom: Animalia
