A Club or Pencil sea urchin found on the beach


Isn’t this something ! Anna found this sea urchin on the beach and I thought it just had all kinds of encrustations making it look quite unique. However on looking things up, I discovered that this is a Club or Pencil urchin.

See you on the beach,

    Hi Marta
    Do you keep the urchins you find? I came across your blog when trying to identify one I just found. You have some urchins pictured which you can’t find (at least on the beach) in Australia and I would love to trade you if you were interested. Also there are some AMAZING wildlife shots on this blog, especially the whale shark
