Echinoderms

Phylum Echinodermata (Echinoderms)

Picture Citation: http://kentsimmons.uwinnipeg.ca/16cm05/1116/16anim5.htm

The term Echinoderm means spiny-skinned animals that move by the use of hundreds of suction cup-tipped appendages.

Echinoderms have radial symmetry; this means that the animal's body plan could be divided along any place into equal halves.

Examples of Echinoderms: Sea Stars, Brittle Stars, Sea Urchins, Sand Dollars, Sea Cucumbers, Sea Lilies, Feather Stars, and Sea Daisies.

Tube feet work like suction cups; they stick to an object and then pull the organism along.
