    Let's start with a crazy fun fact about sea urchins!

    Vertebrate - Val @valfrogval sea urchins protect themselves by putting rocks and shells on their "heads" so apparently if u give them tiny hats they will put them on and wear them

    Woah, we had no idea! This has gotta be one of the cutest fun facts we've ever learned about aquatic life. These sea urchins wearing tiny hats are going to give our puppers and cats a run for their money, that's for sure. Look out doggos, there's a new animal in town who's here to challenge your 'cutest ever' title!
