S siteadmin

Long-Spined Sea Urchin (Diadema antillarum) can be seen around the coast of Fuerteventura in rock pools and in shallow waters on rocky shores at depths down to 10 metres.

They are a deep purple to black color and reach a maximum diameter of 10 centimetres and their spines are up to 20 centimetres in length and can grow as long as 30 centimetres in very large individuals.

Sea urchins should not be handled, and you should avoid standing on them when in the water. Their stings can be extremely painful and the spines that a sting can leave behind can be difficult to remove from the skin.
