I was wondering if anyone knew how to tell the difference between a female & male urchin?:oops:
51% sure of this answer...
But maybe this will help. Does your urchin seem to get angry for no reason whatsoever? Does it say one thing and mean another? Does it like to watch "What Not to Wear" on TV? These things could be a hint that yours if a female.
I would post the other obvious ways of how to tell it's male but this is a family forum :-)
:lol: Haahaaa!!!!:lol: You guys are funny!lol
i didnt think saying it leaves the seat up is so bad?
Oh, I have alot of other indicators for maleness :lol:
But leaving that seat up is a dead giveaway!!
All very cute replies. But its not the answer I was looking for.
honestly idk why you want/need to know the sex of your specimen.
heres a qoute from this article:
"It is impossible to tell what sex sea urchins are until they shed gametes from the five pores on the top center of the animal"
Salmon Lab Protocols: Sea Urchin Axonemes
I never thought to google it, and Pasfur's reply was just too funny to not respond to. Good Link, OF2F.
The only reason I was asking is that I was thinking of trying to breed them. And I am looking for info on them.
