On this episode of Beyond the Tide, Coyote and the crew go tide pooling off the coast of Hawaii’s most majestic island, Kauai!
The Hawaiian Islands, a well known divers paradise, boast some of the most amazing collections of marine life in the world…so of course the Brave Wilderness team couldn’t wait to do some exploring!
While searching along the shores during low tide Coyote discovers MANY different species of Sea Urchin. Some are spiky and some are not, some are colorful and some are camouflaged…however what you really need to know is which ones sting?!
Well luckily you have Coyote Peterson on “hand” to figure out this very question!
Get ready to see Coyote spiked by a Sea Urchin!

Caption: Gets again got nailed again out of the . palm of my hand . [music]. when i see the word island what comes to . your mind i'm guessing a small desolate . blip of land in the middle of a massive . body of water that's what i imagined . when i came to the hawaiian islands . however once we arrived on quite it was . considerably larger than i ever imagined . spanning roughly 560 square miles it is . the fourth largest landmass in a chain . of eight islands nicknamed the garden . island its interior is a diverse mix of . dense tropical forests canyons rolling. hills and scattered pockets of human . civilization what's going on guys right . now it's about 7:30 in the morning and . the tide is at its lowest which is the . perfect opportunity to search for marine . creatures and what we're gonna do today . is explore place called secret beach . let's get there we're gonna have to type . down this trail through the woods to get . to the shoreline i hope you guys are . ready cuz it's adventure time . when it comes to the coastline no matter . where you stand the pacific ocean rules . the horizon line stretching further than . the eye can see in all directions going . down is the easy part . let's get back up the hill after an . afternoon is high boiling it's really . gonna be brutal . wow look at that blue sky blue water . golden sand if you want a . picture-perfect image of hawaii this is . truly it looks like there's rocks off in . this direction and where there are rocks . there are typos and where there are type . holes there marine creatures as we . travel across the soft golden sand the . sun's beating rays were immediately. noticeable as even at 7 o'clock in the . morning the temperatures were nearly 100 . degrees fahrenheit all the waves are . crashing up against those rocks. i imagined to find some tide pools . scattered up through there so let's have . that direction . okay the rocks slippery out there you . can see this check it out. this is all like super volcanic all this . rock ancient and great for gripping on . your boots when it's dry but when it's . wet is like black ice so be very very . careful as we're getting closer to the . water. [music]. stretched out before us was an elaborate . maze of intertidal pools these pockets . of standing saltwater left behind by the . fallen tide and served as a much needed . refuge for marine animals that were . hoping to avoid the scorching sun so it . was just a matter of methodically . searching the pools one at a time to. find some creatures to feature in front . of the cameras there tell me these like . pockets that have like rocks in them . there they these little mini aquarium . ecosystems we've got a bunch of little . snails in here i did see a small fish . swimming and went underneath the rock . and was hiding that's cool it's like its . own little civilization right there in a . tide pool now i do imagine that the . water does get up high enough where this . is all covered probably to the rock line . here but in the time being let's see. this water wow it's actually pretty cool . down there in the rocks you can feel . it's warm at the surface as i put my . hand in deeper it is much cooler so it . would not be difficult for small marine . creatures to survive all right well i . don't see anything catchable in here . [music]. [music]. black sea cucumber. there's some movement up here oh my gosh . i got a little shrimp thing right here . i want some beer shook feature okay got . it . walla what is that that is some sort of . little shrimp creature buddy oh it's all . spiky gotta be very gentle with its legs . it's incredibly fragile get you off of . there look at that . that's a shrimp of some sort wow look at . its colors it's so bright that's crazy . can you see it . see its thorax there its tail you see. its tail oh yeah it's like a coral . shrimp or something i'm gonna have to . look that species up in our field guide . that's actually the first time i've ever . caught a shrimp trying to catch zebra . blennies and i just look in and sees. brightly colored alien looking creatures . look at all of its antennae like little . strands of fishing line in the wind how. cool is that. wow all right i'm gonna put this guy on . my hand let's see if it'll swim . backwards you ready awesome that was a . cool fine wow . did not expect to catch a shrimp super . cool moving further down the shoreline i . carefully searched in every nook and . crevice i could find these shaded safe. havens where i do . hiding spots for all kinds of animals . and it wasn't long before we came across . our next find. this is the bannister . [music]. wow. how are venomous cuz he is fine i did . got it thanks bouncing on a rock . very very slowly. i can't confirm . sea urchins do sting and it does hurt . real slowly i got a bounce here can you . see it yep that's a banded sea urchin . right there. i'm gonna keep it partially in the water . look at that wow like a little tadpole . porcupine no sea urchins in hawaii have . a nickname sometimes they call them the . hawaiian tattoo because they say it . feels like getting a tattoo with all the . little spines that go into your skin and . as i reach down i try to gently coax . this one up i actually took a stinger. right in the finger not a problem . doesn't hurt too bad kind of feels like . a bee sting well look at it move these . are venomous. very mild venom but i can certainly . attest to the fact that it feels about . like a bee sting i'm gonna gently kind . of looks like a lionfish away . there we go those sea urchin very cool . look at that. isn't that beautiful look at that banded . striping and that's where they get the . name banded sea urchin and for sake of . not lying gets fined again i think if . you guys got decent shots i'm gonna go . ahead and put it back into the water . because my hand is very soft from being . wet all morning and definitely does hurt . ah get you again got nailed again my . hand. spines down. yowzers okay well good look at that now . it's back tucked into a tiny little . shaded corner wow that was fast italy . great oh they they move a lot faster . than you would think when they want to . and it is definitely risky to ever try . to handle a sea urchin i don't recommend . that you try doing it some have venom . that is very toxic this one's very mild . my hand does burn right now the tip of . my finger feels like about like a bee . sting it is uncomfortable so do not try . to handle sea urchins but i'm glad we . got that one up close for the cameras . because i knew that they were hearing . these tadpoles a very common species . here i'm quiet alright guys let's keep . moving here exploring at low tide can be . a risky adventure not only were the . rocks slippery and sharp but the . drop-offs into the ocean were . dangerously turbulent so the crew and i . did our best to move with caution and . precision alright guys so we've hit kind . of an impasse observation containers up . and over this rock wall . it's a lot to explore we had traveled . for nearly three miles down the . coastline before coming upon a massive. outcrop lined with jagged rocks who . intricate cavernous pockets this was a. perfect place to search and before we . knew it we found ourselves smack dab in . the middle of sea urchin city that's . like a tide pool paradise . beautiful water we got a waterfall . coming off their makeup . retard 40 all right looks like to be out . of the restaurant. start exploring i think this might be . you guys this is the goldmine the secret . spot. pretty sure the day almost looks like a . movie set it does what kind is movie set . except for very wilderness that's right . [music]. step. dangerous down in there yeah it does . look the high it's really coming in now . wait coming in here you never know you . could just see an octopus slinking along . oh cool there's no the future . two different species species . side-by-side i gotta get this one . got it. yeah that's a sea urchin that's sea . urchin right let's back up and get away . from these breaking waves take a few . steps back there watch your step in them . look at this okay we're having a long . walk with sea urchins and i put a little . water into this clear container so i can . keep them hydrated but on my left here i . have a bore sea urchin what would it be . with a b bore like it digs into things . and i'm i write a helmet sea urchin two . very distinct and different looking sea . urchins check that out now first let's . take a quick look at the boris huge i'm . gonna place this one back down into the . water okay . take this guy cool and hydrated now . believe it or not this little marine . creature is like this incredible tidal . pool mole and that it digs through the . environment they have five teeth on . their underside like this and they chew. through the rock whoa really . they chew through rock easily but the . rock we're standing on the rock was . standing on they were bore right through . it just like a drill and then they will . use all of these outer spines to wedge . themselves in and keep a strong hold in . position as they then dig deeper into . this volcanic rock structure and look at . that all the spikes are starting to pull . down what i'm gonna do for you real . quick here mark is gently hold it up and . look at its underside there . now that's both its mouth and it's but . that you were looking at right there for . one in the same one in the same you see . that and there's this little bore mouth . there that is so that's what's used to . the rock. that's which used to actually you can . see the little teeth right up front . there you see those white sticking out . up he's retracting them back in now i do . not know if these bite they do not sting . and i would assume that with five teeth . that can cut through rock he could . probably cut through human skin so i'm . gonna be extra careful when handling . this time cool creature but look at that . now they do not sting like the banded . variety right so i'm not worrying about . any little spines going into my hand . however if you do step on one of these . if you're walking barefoot through the . tide pool trust me it's like stepping on . a pin cushion i've had it happen and it . is not pleasant well that's pretty cool . but the one that i really want to look . at is the helmet urgent i have never . seen one of these in the wild only in . books and look at that it really looks . like a helmet and it's covered in all . these hard plates which i'm guessing are . made of calcium it's kind of like an. exoskeleton and what kind of makes them . really different from the bohr variety . it's let me flip it over look at all of . those tube feet on the other side man it . is really purple. yeah and very very sticky and there's . its mouth and it's but both in the same . place and what they're doing is slowly . moving along all of this volcanic rock . and they're eating all of the dying . plant matters so feasting on an algae . many dead plants all of that is fair . game so these guys got to go through it . and clean up the environment they're . filtering all of this ecosystem through . their bodies so what's great about these . is that they're in the indicator species . and then the gator species means that if . this animal is healthy the environment . is healthy and i grabbed this one . because it was the largest but i also . peeked over the back side of the rock . there at all the surf there's about . thirty of these on the back side of the . rocks now you look at this creature you . say yourself man well obviously nothing . eats this believe it or not humans eat . sea urchins in several different . cultures now i look at this thing i . think to myself man this is like rock . solid what exactly you're gonna eat it's. actually the insides that are edible now . if you think eating a sea urchin sounds . strange here's something that's even . more bizarre several different varieties . actually have a parasite in there but . that parasite is a crab so let me flip. this guy over again a crab will actually . bury itself into the sea urchins butt . and feast off of its insides that's . sounds awful how would you like to have . a crab crawling up your butt . hey that's fake it answers itself no way . no fun i hope you don't have a crab in . your butt buddy all right i'm gonna . bring the boar urgent back up into the . shot here one more time get him side by . side look at that two sea urchins that . are so distinctly different so cool . i'm coyote peterson be brave stay wild . we'll see on the next adventure all . right let's get these two back into the . tidepools . like clockwork the tide was quickly . returning so i carefully worked my way . down the rocky descent and release the . urchins right back where we found them . the diversity of marine life along the . coast of kauai was impressive and . whether you are exploring the tide pools . under the pool darkness of night or . braving the scorching sun rays by day . it's indicator species like sea . cucumbers and sea urchins that truly . exemplify just how healthy this . ecosystem is and will hopefully always . stay. hey coyote pack have you picked up your . tickets for the brave adventurer store . yet there's only a few left . make sure to click on this link to . reserve your seats today and remember . the tour is the only place you can find . one of the
