Green Sea Urchin - Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis I found a few green sea urchins in this tiny rock pool - all were eaten and were accompanied by empty snail shells.  The sea urchin shells were tiny - only about 1 cm diameter.<br />

''Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis'' is commonly known as the green sea urchin because of its characteristic green color. It is commonly found in northern waters all around the world including both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans to a northerly latitude of 81 degrees and as far south as the Puget Sound and England.
