Crinoids, commonly called sea lilies, are marine animals that are related to starfish, brittle stars, and sea urchins.   Most crinoids attach themselves to the sea floor by a stem and then use feathery feeding arms to sweep food into their mouths.  They live in both shallow waters and in depths as great as 30,000 ft.
