Ever wondered what a sea urchin looked like? urchin is an old word meaning hedgehog. Very apt. .
Look but don’t touch. The spines can be poisonous. 😱
We saw these in some tanks at a fishing village on Koh Kut #thailand. We also spotted some when we went snorkelling — all black like these ( we weren’t able to see the little balls of colors on them) and some black and white ones. Amazing to see and glad that the water was deep enough that we couldn’t easily step on them. .
