Crinoid

Class Crinoidea

Description:

Crinoid with all of its feeding arms tucked in. The tube feet are covered with a sticky mucus that traps any food that floats past. Once they have caught a particle of food, the tube feet can flick it into the ambulacral groove, where the cilia are able to propel the stream of mucus towards the mouth.
