Sea Urchin

Sea Urchin


This sea urchin was mostly dead when I found it a few months ago. I used it as a test animal to check conditions in my aquarium.

    That is very pretty, Azareal! I love the way the purple hues sort of shoot off the sea urchin. Simply beautiful! 🙂 I am with Beth. Who knew?

    Reminds me of this:

    Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there’s usually only one thing you can do.

    Awesome pic. What a find. Years ago, I was the aquarist for our county parks system. Had to go out in the freezing cold of winter and collect mussels off the jetties to feed the starfish. The crawfish used to escape all the time and I’d find him under the heater in the bathroom, all dried up. I’d put him back in the tank, and he’d float for a bit until his body took on enough water, then he’d suddenly sink to the bottom and become reanimated. Fun job.
