OLYMPIA — A Washington man found one of the largest sand dollars of its species on a Washington beach.

The Olympian reports Eruc Takaska was beachcombing at low tide last week on Puget Sound’s Eld Inlet near Olympia when he found the sand dollar that measured about 4.7 inches across. The record sand dollar, according to the Guinness World Records, measured just over 5 inches in diameter. But Talaska says the sand dollar he found was of a different species.
