As long as we keep our distance, I wouldn't mind sharing with this sea urchin, the white sandy beaches of San Francisco Island in Baja California, Mexico.

Hi Maria, that is one different looking sea urchin. I wonder where the front and back ends are?
Great photo close-up. You can really see a lot of the details.
Thanks for posting this great photo!

That is SO COOL!! It looks really big also. Are they common?

I've only seen this type of sea urchin once, when I took the photo. It's called pencil sea urchin and my husband told me that in ancient times the spikes were used as a writing instrument. Don't know how common it is but he sure looks different from the spiny one.
Kathy: I also wonder if he's upside down. ;-)
