Miniature Heart Urchins
Most of us have seen heart urchins (aka sea mice), those puffy paper-thin shells that look like blown-up sand dollars (see image below). Miniature Heart Urchins are actually tiny cousins to the far bigger heart urchin, and only ever attain about 1 cm long. We find them in sandy patches in the reef, many of them with holes drilled in them by predators! They are hollow and bubble-like, also known as ‘urchin tests’. As with all of the silver shells we use at ‘Alohi Kai, we only use found-shells that are empty and unoccupied before taking them from the sea – we would never knowingly harm a creature that grew or uses them!
