Description

Juvenile purple sea urchins - despite their green coloration. The spines are longer than the green urchin's spines. Seen in the tidepools off the Captain Cook Trail in the Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve. Due to the extinction of Oregon's Sea Otters, these herbivores have decimated the kelp forests in our area. Since a single female is estimated to produce over 20 million eggs in a year..well, sushi anyone? Two Siuslaw Elementary 3rd graders, generously donated their palms as a backdrop.
