3. Hang or display your sea urchins out of reach of little children.



About Sea Urchins

sea urchin

Sea urchins have been called pin cushions and sea pumpkins because of their appearance.

These animals have sharp spines, which are sometimes poisonous.

When the animals die, the spines often fall off and the round pumpkin-like shells may wash up on beaches.

Sea urchins may be found in many different colours - purple, green, orange, red, yellow, black etc.

Their mouths are at the center of the underside of the shell and they have five pointed teeth.

There are over 200 species of sea urchins and they are found all over the world.

Some live deep in the ocean and some live in shallow rock pools.
