Collection: Urchins

Tropical marine urchins are spiny echinoderms found in coastal waters and coral reefs worldwide. These fascinating creatures are known for their spherical or flattened bodies covered in sharp, often colorful spines. They play crucial ecological roles by grazing on algae, helping to control seaweed growth and maintain coral reef health. Urchins move slowly using tube feet and can be found in a variety of sizes and colors, adapting to different habitats from rocky shores to seagrass beds.
