sea urchin

Deep dweller

This tiny — about 1 centimeter in diameter — sea urchin made its way from the ocean floor near the Galapagos Rift into the collection basket of the Deep Submergence Vehicle Alvin in 2002. It was found only after all other samples had been removed from the basket. (Photo by DSV Alvin dive crew, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
