"Heads up", its an urchin...

Sea urchins are normally found in rock pools and when alive have sharp spikes all over... so watch out not to step in one cause it may lead to jumping around on one leg holding on to a painful foot.  I found this urchin that has already lost it's spikes in a pool near the Knysna Heads and perched it on a rock for a picture with one of the Heads in the background.

  4. Such a cool sea creature. I've seen people make lamps out of the de-spinned shells.
