Sea Urchin

The sea urchin is covered in spines on almost all of its body, the only part not covered is the very bottom most parts, being the mouth and the tube like legs that move it along the ocean floor. The name “urchin” comes from an old English word for hedgehog, which are similarly covered in spines.
