ECHINODERMS
 filmstrip.gif (6075 bytes) Echinoderm Slideshow
 Earth.gif - 6650 Bytes  Echinoderm   Echinoderms have a few important aspects in common. They have bony ossicles in their body. They have a water-vascular system which pumps water through the madroporite. They also have small jaws that are supported by the water-vascular system. And they have tube feet which they use to attach to objects, for protection, as well as to obtain food. They have radial symmetry and most can regenerate lost limbs.

 Earth.gif - 6650 Bytes  Ocean Animals: Echinoderms   Echinoderms are radially symmetrical animals that are only found in the sea (there are none on land or in fresh water). Echinoderms mean "spiny skin" in Greek. Many, but not all, echinoderms have spiny skin. There are over 6,000 species. Echinoderms usually have five appendages (arms or rays), but there are some exceptions.
 Earth.gif - 6650 Bytes  Wonders of the Sea: Echinoderms   The phylum Echinodermata , which contains about 6000 species, gets its name from the Greek, literally meaning "spiny skin."

SEA URCHINS
 Earth.gif - 6650 Bytes  Sea Urchins  Sea urchins are a group of marine invertebrates that today can be found in almost every major marine habitat from the poles to the equator and from the intertidal zone to depths of more than 5,000 m. There are around 800 extant species and the group has a long and detailed fossil record stretching back about 450 million years ago to the Late Ordovician Period.
