 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

Navy called in to deal with two unexploded sea urchins!

The Australian Navy were called in last week after a snorkeler mistook a pair of sea urchins for unexploded anti-shipping mines.

The man was snorkelling at Mosman near Sydney when he discovered the creatures and reported them to police, reports the 

Daily Telegraph.

Even after he was shown photos of both mines and urchins by police — who were rather dubious about the man’s report — he was still adamant that they were mines (compare the two for yourself in the picture below and at the top of the page and see if you can tell which is which).


As a precaution a maritime exclusion zone had to be placed on the area until the Navy came in to take a look. They discovered two 'healthy sized' sea urchins among the rocks.
