In New Leaf

In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this creature.

"Sea Urchins are a close relative of both the starfish and sea cucumbers and are assumed to be stationary. In actuality, they are capable of walking thanks to the many skinny legs they have between their spikes. They feed on seaweed on the ocean floor using their strong mouths located on their undersides. They are rich in nutrients but also have a lot of cholesterol, so take care not to eat too much."
