Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Horizons[edit]

When donating to the museum, Blathers will say the following:

"Slate pencil urchins are a type of sea urchin topped with thick, rounded spines that resemble sticks of chalk. These urchins' spines protect them not only from predators but from violent waves as well. Found in coral reefs, they're usually bright red, brown, or purple in color. For all those bright colors, one would think the slate pencil urchin to be quite deadly. But all those pretty colors, it seems, are just a pretty show"

The Slate Pencil Urchin is located in the coral reef tank.
