Crinoid, which means lily like, belongs to a class of animal called echinoderms, meaning spiny skinned. The stalked, flower-like creatures, with their 5-fold symmetry, spread delicate feeding arms to filter microorganisms from the water. The feather-like filters are clearly visible between the arms in our exact cast of an ancient crinoid fossil. The Crinoid first appeared in the early Cambrian Period and survived major extinction at the end of the Palaeozoic Era 240 million years ago. They exist in all oceans to depths of 13,000 feet. They can be found today attached to rocks at least 300 feet under the ocean, dangling elegantly on their long stem.
