hi Marites, how r u?
I have seen black sea urchins with long spikes and this is the first time I saw red ones like these, they look like those brushes made of coconut husks.I just wonder what the taste is like.
Have a nice day.

i love sea urchins! especially when eaten raw--uni sashimi, it has a rich flavor, just delicious. but it's an acquired taste, i guess. :D

we used to collect the shells of sea urchins. I think I would have to be pretty hungry to eat the insides though.

Sea urchins are so hard to hold with their sharp spins, I don't think I would try to eat one... ouch:D
