Description: Urchins are a species of ocean creatures know as Echnodermata, when they first form as larva they swim freely, but as soon as the round skeleton is formed the urchin stays at the bottom of the ocean floor moving very slowly while feeding mostly on algae.
Their rigid skeletal system has interlocking plates known as a test. On the top of their bodies are five paired rows of their endoskeleton and they form in star shaped pattern.
