Study of an Urchin


Reef enthusiast
It wasn't until last night that I really paid attention to how the black spine urchin moves around. Tiny little suction cup feet on skinny little legs, about the thickness of a thick eyelash. Pretty amazing. He walked on over to a bare corner of my aquarium where I got a very good view, and then he walked on up the side of the tank.



It's awesome isn't it? I have a rock boring urchin and his tenticals stick out further than its spikes. About 2 1/2 to 3 inches.
#@!#$@!!!!! Damnit D2, no chance of anyone winning POTM again! :Cheers:
Amazing shot, I'll be looking for it in the next NatGeo

The last shot looks like he's in hyperspace.
