Question : [Ques] 5. Looking like a spiky black koosh ball, sitting on the sandy bottom, or nesting in the reef, these creatures are quite a delicacy among the islanders. What are they?
…1. Sea sprites
2. Sea burrs
3. Sea urchins
4. Sea porcupines
Closely related to sea cucumbers, sea urchins are in the same phylum as starfish, the echinoderms. The sea urchin is called kina in Cook Island Māori, and has been eaten by humans since prehistoric times. However, be careful, because some species carry venom in the Pedicellariae between the spines, and you really don’t want to stand on one of those!
