Little baba sea urchin!!

You have to admit, this little juvenile sea urchin is totally adorable?…. This little darling was found right here in Devon! Plymouth Sound to be exact. Amazing what you can find right on your doorstep (probably not literally… unless you choose to reside in a beach hut, in which case…. Cool!) I believe the scientific name for this beastie is ‘Echinocardium cordatum‘ commonly known as the ‘Sea potato’. I confess.. this photo is a few months old now, taken in February this year. Gaaaaaaw! Look at its little tiny baba hairs!IMG_2979
