Image of green sea urchin

Description:

DescriptionAPI The test (endoskeleton) of a variable sea urchin (Lytechinus variegatus) washed up on a beach in the Lake Worth Lagoon Estuary. Sea urchins capture atmospheric carbon dioxide and convert it into harmless calcium carbonate to make their lovely symmetrical "shells" (called "test"). www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/02/130204220840.htm Date 1 August 2014, 07:05 Source Sea Urchin Endoskeleton Author Bob Peterson from North Palm Beach, Florida, Planet Earth!
